Saks Fifth Avenue, continuing to prune its store base, said Tuesday that its unit in WestShore Plaza in Tampa, Fla., will close May 4, affecting 105 associates.
“We never like closing stores,” Stephen I. Sadove, chairman and chief executive officer of Saks Inc., told WWD. “It’s never an easy decision. But Tampa’s volume was declining. We didn’t think there was a longer-term growth opportunity for us. We think we can make better use of corporate funds. We are investing in a new store in Sarasota, which is less than an hour away from Tampa.”
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
