Category: Finance,Retail

Macy's said Wednesday it plans to hire 80,000 workers for the holidays, matching its hiring at the start of the season last year.

The company said in a press release it's expecting "a strong and successful holiday shopping season." In December of 2017, Macy's eventually added another 7,000 jobs to match heightened traffic in stores.

Macy's said this year it will staff 23,500 positions at its consumer fulfillment centers to help with online orders, an increase of 5,500 jobs in 2017. It will hire 1,500 people to work at call centers for customer service and 1,000 people to work at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

There will be a hiring event at Macy's stores on Thursday, Oct. 18.
