A Massive Department Retailer Is Now Closing in Indiana

A massive department retailer is now closing in Indiana, leaving the state without any other locations due to the permanent shutter.

Simon Malls, the parent company, announced in April that the two-level Saks Fifth Avenue store would close when its lease ends in July.

The Keystone store is Sak’s only Indiana location, forcing customers to shop online after the closure.

A spokesperson for Saks Fifth Avenue told The U.S. Sun that the decision to close a store is “never easy,” but this is the right move for the company.

“We are committed to treating every associate with respect and fairness throughout the process; all eligible associates will receive appropriate employment separation packages,” they added.

The mall renovation is expected to start sometime after the closure and won’t be complete until late 2026,

“The Fashion Mall at Keystone’s redevelopment will further enhance the center’s positioning as the region’s premier experiential shopping destination and a gathering place for the community,” said Patrick Peterman, Simon senior vice president for mixed-use development, in a news release.

Simon Malls released the redevelopment plan for the mall, featuring improved retail space, new dining options, and a modernized exterior.

The star of the show is a new building called One Keystone Crossing that would house 100,000 square feet of office space across three levels above a ground floor for retail.

There is a large outdoor plaza planned for the area where Saks currently stands.

“Simon is leading the evolution of today’s retail landscape with the strategic transformation of key properties across the country into best-in-class lifestyle destinations,” said Mark Silvestri, Simon’s President of Development, in a press release.

“The redevelopment further solidifies the Fashion Mall at Keystone’s dedication to providing a stand-out retail, lifestyle, and community-focused destination for the region.”

An unexpected restaurant now abruptly closes 7 locations in one state after revealing plans to shutter a total of 36.

TGI Fridays is closing a total of seven restaurants in one state as part of the company’s ongoing growth strategy.

This comes after the chain abruptly closed 36 locations across 12 states in at the beginning of the year, per The-Sun.

The restaurant chain will pull the plug on seven locations across the state of New Jersey in the coming weeks.

Today, Fridays will welcome in famished diners at its location in Brick for the final time.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Weldon Spangler, CEO of TGI Fridays earlier this week.

“We are at the helm of a pivotal moment that will allow us to explore boundless advancement, expansion, and innovation to keep delivering ‘That Fridays Feeling’ that our fans know and love.”

Before the closures, TGI Fridays had about 270 US locations, according to the company’s website.

“As part of the store closures, TGI Fridays is offering more than 1,000 transfer opportunities, which represents over 80% of total impacted employees,” the company previously said in a statement.

“Our top priority has always been delivering a superior experience for each and every TGI Fridays guest, and we’ve identified opportunities to optimize and streamline our operations to ensure we are best positioned to meet – and exceed – on that brand promise,” said Ray Risley, US president and chief operating officer, in the release.

Eight other locations were sold to former CEO Ray Blanchette, a longtime stakeholder who will acquire the previously corporate-owned restaurants.

The sale comes as major changes have been made to the brand’s leadership, including the news of Weldon Spangler being made CEO.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Spangler in a statement.
