May 15, 2019

WILKES-BARRE TWP. — Saks Fifth Avenue is coming to Wilkes-Barre Twp. The Saks Company Store will open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Lord & Taylor facility on Highland Park Boulevard, a spokeswoman from Hudson’s Bay Company confirmed Tuesday. The store will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Canada-based Hudson’s Bay Company is the parent company of Lord & Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue and Saks Off 5th. The Saks Company Store is relocating from a distribution center in Aberdeen, Maryland. A spokeswoman for Hudson’s Bay Company previously said the company is moving its operations from Aberdeen to the Wilkes-Barre Twp. distribution center “to streamline work and create efficiencies.” She would not say how many employees would be hired, but she said the relocation of operations would create new job opportunities at the Wilkes-Barre Twp. distribution center. — DENISE ALLABAUGH
