JACKSON TWP., Ohio (WYTV) – Macy’s is bringing 417 new jobs to North Jackson, with plans of expanding its facility on Mahoning Avenue to operate a fulfillment center.

A spokesperson for Macy’s confirmed the decision on Wednesday, saying renovations should begin in mid-March, and the project is expected to be complete by August.

The company has 55 employees working at the North Jackson facility, which will be retained.

The $29.9 million capital investment comes after an inquiry to Team NEO. According to Macy’s, JobsOhio, the Western Reserve Port Authority, the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber and the Ohio Development Services Agency worked to make the project a reality.

Will get a tax credit of just under 1.5% for eight years

“Macy’s selection of the Lordstown area is a testament to the opportunity in this part of the region,” said Team NEO CEO Bill Koehler. “The North Jackson/Lordstown corridor has witnessed impressive announcements in the past several years with seven companies committing to create more than 5,200 new jobs.”

The tax authority approved a nearly 1.5% credit for over eight years for the project.
