Hal Kahn, the former chairman and chief executive officer of Macy’s East, has come out of retirement to become ceo of Steve & Barry’s.
Kahn is entering a challenging situation. The Port Washington, N.Y.-based specialty chain known for providing stylish celebrity-endorsed lines at low prices, such as Bitten by Sarah Jessica Parker, went bankrupt in July and was quickly bought out of Chapter 11 by Bay Harbour Management in August. The company is in the process of shuttering 97 of 270 stores, leaving 173.
