Hecht’s? What Hecht’s?

When Macy’s bought Hecht’s a while back, there were a lot of questions in the air. Will they close stores? Will Macy’s take over the world? Will Hecht’s become Macy’s? Does it really matter what they call it? Are department stores even relevant in this age of Amazon.com?

Well, the answer to two of those questions is now public.

The Wheaton Hecht’s will close for good.

And Hecht’s will now be Macy’s.

Now, please, go on about not caring about department stores, we realize this was keeping you up nights.

    I would’ve titled this story “What the Hecht’s” – btw – how was your trip?
