COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Macy’s is expecting to create 410 new full-time jobs in the Columbus area, the Ohio governor’s office announced Monday.
Macy’s says the new positions will generate $13.6 million in new annual payroll as part of the company’s new project in the city of Columbus. In return, the Ohio Tax Credit Authority is giving Macy’s a 1.412 percent, eight-year Job Creation Tax Credit.
More details about the project and the exact jobs were not immediately available. You can view all current jobs at Macy’s here.
The news comes just months after Macy’s announced it was eliminating more than 10,000 jobs nationwide and closing 68 stores. Two of those store closures were in the Columbus area (at Eastland Mall and one of the stores at the Mall at Tuttle Crossing).
Stonecrop Technologies is also expected to bring 50 new full-time positions to central Ohio at its location in Grove City. The company provides network installation, operational support, maintenance, repair and training services.
In all, the governor’s office says tax assistance provided to six companies statewide will create 1,280 new jobs and retain 3,019 jobs in Ohio. The office projects this will generate $54 million in new payroll while spurring more than $119 million in investments statewide.
