McCrory's, Newberry stores closing
The McCrory's department store at 52 W. Washington St. in downtown Hagerstown and the Newberry store at Valley Mall will be closing soon, probably this spring, store officials said Friday.
A spokesperson for a third local McCrory's store, in the Long Meadow Shopping Center, said, as far as she knows, that store will remain open. She said she wasn't permitted to give her name.
McCrory's Stores officials were unavailable for comment on Friday.
McCrory's Stores of York, Pa., a division of McCrory's Corp., filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in February 1992.
Chapter 11 frees a company from the threat of creditors lawsuits while it reorganizes its finances.
McCrory's Stores said in 1995 that it was closing a number of its stores, which operate under five trade names, as part of a restructuring effort.
