Macy*s Closing Broadway Mall/Commons in Hicksville, New York

This person knew someone that working at the store at the Broadway Mall in Hicksville, New York and said that the homeless use the bathrooms and sleep in there all day. It was supposed to close this year and at around the same time as the store in Nanuet did. But they had to pay off the remaining debt from a previous renovation, and she said that they are now expected to shut the store down in Early 2020 after the 2019 Holiday Season not sure if this is accurate or not. But this did come directly from a store employee.

The homeless were not using the Hicksville Macy. Rather, they were using the Hicksville Railroad Station just as they use the AirTrain Station at Jamaica.

Update: Final Closure Announced!

The store will be closing in March 2020 after nearly 64 years in business. It is unclear if the closing of the store will result in the mall having vacancy rates ≥ 50%. This is because two other anchors are also present, albeit nontraditional ones:

  1. Target (replaced JCPenney in 2003–04)
  2. Ikea (opened in 1990; construction on corridor to link store to mall commenced in 2002 and corridor completed in 2004–05)

Ikea may be the only cash cow that is going to make the mall not die anytime soon...

That’s so sad 😞... maybe employers need to smile more . And work together and customer service has to become a lot better! People go to stores and no one helps like they use to it’s sad, not saying mays , but lows is the worst ! Home Depot is gotten a lot better! You wonna walk in to a store and have someone help you! That’s why your working there . Or take ur butt home ! Stop making these store go out of business,because soon there will be all self checkout!!

The Macy's store in Commack NY is also planning to close because their landlord is forcing them out of their spot to put a BJ's there.

i am currently working at macy’s omni in broadway until the 10th of of january so i only have a few days left,bc i was only hired as seasonal and told i won’t be kept,which is really screwed up bc i work 7 days & have worked non stop since i started on November 1st. only day off hasn’t been december 25th which wasn’t paid.I don’t get told anything from managers they’re stuffy,rude & dismissive,i only hears rumors & gossip.but so far i haven’t heard this particular location will be shut down this upcoming 2020.
I can see why ppl think that bc sometimes the store struggles to make sales outside the holiday season when they spend gift cards,cash or rewards & customers mostly only go to buy gifts for birthdays,mother’s day,father’s day,christmas,weddings,etc..those types/kind of special occasions. I mostly see fragrances/perfumes,coats/jackets, & a few jewelry.
Handbags barely get sold as they don’t carry Louis Vuitton,Gucci,Chanel,Dior,Fendi etc. they only sell lower end hand bags like michael kors or coach,also clothes is barely sold only for older plus size women mostly and for older men,teenagers don’t buy at Maycs & shoes they don’t sell too many men’s it’s mostly women’s they sell,but the selection is poor lots of steve madden.MK.Thalia sodi,finish line ,koolabura by ugg etc.,but nothing super popular like the ugly sneakers guys line up for at Champs,famous footwear nor the variety of shoes you can find online for women.
Few cosmetics get sold,i hardly see lipsticks,toners,foundations,mascaras,eyeshadows,compacts etc. get sold. Skincare gets sold occasionally,a lot less frequent then fragrances,but more often than makeup.
Housegoods gets sold decently,it’s so-so variety wise though the quality is very exceptionally good, i love the towels,but not too many kitchen devices,luggages or suitcases get sold. Its mostly bedding, dishware or cutlery.They don’t have curtains in store bc they barely sell. Idk it’s a very very rough & really tough economy in long island right now for lower middle class individuals & families.I come from poverty and have loved nationwide in different states so know very well in flesh the struggle of the economy to stores and high rate of unemployment with jobs even for college grads like me.In most parts of the country it’s not easy either for like i say broke lower class income folks like me.
The fortunate wealthy folks from the metropolitan area occasionally come here,but most shop at bed,bath and beyond,williams sonoma,other online retailers/competitors or places like americana manhasset,roosevelt field,marshall’s,,tj maxx,kohl’s,burlington,nordstrom,bloomingdales,Saks off 5th avenue,home goods,fortunoff,target,neiman Marcus,or go to manhattan,even as far as the mainland continental US soil in new jersey where there’s more a lot more variety of stores to choose from & no taxes on clothes,shoes,handbags,etc. or Pennsylvania,delaware,connecticut,rhode island & other states for better variety as long island is very small & has very few stores & a much smaller poorer selection as opposed to other states or cities ,like NJ,TX,L.A.,ATL,Chicago which being that i’ve lived in those places i known they have a lot more stores to choose from bc they’re on the mainland versus a tiny island like L.I.
Sunglasses don’t get sold much either it’s always dead & furntiture hardly sells bc it’s big bulky expensive stuff most ppl either don’t have space for nor want.The kids clothingsection sells very well in person,but online barely anything gets packed for children it’s weird how that happens.Kids shoes i’ve neber packed any i’ve only seen a colleague pack two pairs the other day, idk,but it seems this macy’s isn’t closing yet,but i don’t know how many more years it will stay open for its a huge 6 story building,and taxes/rent mustn’t be cheap as the town is expensive. Most teens flock to to American eagle,Hollister,old navy,VS & other stores that aren’t macy’s.

The name was changed from Broadway Mall to Broadway Commons due to a change I. Ownership.

So "apparently" Macy's is planning on closing their Broadway Mall-excuse me... Broadway "Commons" (because "apparently" the M-word is considered a "bad word" when you discuss shopping centers today) location. I hope this is just a rumor and isn't real; because I read a similar story about them closing the Roosevelt Field location and it turned-out they never did.

“You’re going to win so much you’re going to get tired of it!” The only thing management cares about is their Executive Compensation. They will do whatever they must to keep their numbers up, including layoffs. We are being cored out from both sides. Amazon is a huge factor in closing stores, just look at mall traffic lately. It’s a ghost town out there! Once autonomous vehicles hit and masses of truck drivers are laid off, I just don’t know what will happen next.

I don't wish for the store to close and see more people out of jobs, but if the rumor is true, it's not surprising. It's a dull, poorly maintained store. The only real renovation was out of necessity when the basement got flooded. Eliminating so many district and regional positions made the 5th floor a ghost town.
