Bloomies Tweaks Its Hours As Retail Suffers

Bloomingdale's at Lenox Square and undoubtedly at Perimeter Mall as well have reduced certain operating hours. Monday through Wednesday they will close an hour earlier at 8PM rather than 9. Sundays the store will close at operate from noon till 6, rather than 7. These changes take effect this Sunday and are probably the first of many as other retailers will most likely trim hours to cut costs. This reduction of operating hours comes days after a number of key managers were let go in addition to a number of relatively new sales associates. Many managerial positions were eliminated at the store level as well as regional positions. Repeat Atlanta!
