Macy’s changes store hours
Macy’s has changed its store hours at St. Clair Square. Instead of closing at 9 p.m., the department store closes at 8 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, according to the company’s website.
The store will continue to close at 9 p.m. Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
A representative of Macy’s could not be reached for comment. Store hours have also changed at other Macy’s locations in the region, according to the website.
What’s happening in the food court?
The lights are out at one of the food court’s healthier options.
Fitopia announced plans to close in September. The vendor opened about a year ago in the space previously occupied by Chick-fil-A. Healthy salads and sandwiches were on the menu.
Christine Poehling, a spokeswoman for St. Clair Square, said Fitopia is “looking at relaunching sometime next year with a redeveloped concept.”
One store moves out
After more than six years in the mall, the children’s clothes, toys and gifts shop Kiddo’s has moved out and expanded its home base at 5621 Old Collinsville Rd., Fairview Heights. Owner Jessica Butcher said the business moved in April.
A decline in sales at the mall triggered the move.
The store’s new location features a gym where families with younger children can take recreational classes together. For more information, call 618-622-8500.
Women’s clothing store moves in
On the first floor, Fashion 5 has moved into the space previously occupied by New York Co.
The store opened about a week ago, according to Poehling, and carries clothing and accessories for women, everything in the store is $7.99 or less.
