The company closed all of its stores March 18 and started a phased reopening earlier this month, reopening four of its metro Atlanta stories including its flagship location at Lenox Mall. Another 80 stores are reopening for Memorial Day weekend.
The department store will still maintain its existing Johns Creek technology hub on State Bridge Road where 1,500 employees focus on back-office support and infrastructure.
“We’re grateful for the warm reception we received from civic and government leaders and look forward to our ongoing presence in the Atlanta area,” Schwartz said.
While Macy's tech hub is no longer coming to Atlantic Station, Microsoft announced it will open an office at Atlantic Station next year focused on cloud computing and artificial intelligence, the tech company's latest project in Atlanta.
The $75 million development will create 1,500 jobs in several different categories.
