Saks to close Denver store

New York City -- Saks on Wednesday announced it plans to close its Saks Fifth Avenue store located in the Cherry Creek Mall in Denver, Colo., on March 19. With the closing, the company will have closed seven Saks Fifth Avenue stores since July 2010.

Steve Sadove, chairman and CEO of Saks, commented: “We routinely assess the productivity, profitability, and potential for each store in our portfolio and may conclude a closing is appropriate from time to time. Our strategy is to deploy our resources in our most productive stores and to close underperforming stores, when feasible.”
