Macy's reducing store hours amid omicron surge

The recent surge in coronavirus cases is taking its toll on Macy's department stores.

The retailer is cutting operation hours as they prepare for a potential increase in COVID-19 cases among workers.

Stores will now open at 11 am instead of 10 am. They'll also close an hour earlier, at 8 pm.

The new hours are in place Monday through Thursday.

Weekend operations will not change.

Macy's says they expect the new hours to last the rest of the month.
