(CNN) — Macy’s is getting ready for this year’s holiday shopping season.
The retailer says it plans to bring on 80,000 seasonal workers. That’s up from last year when the company hired 78,000 people.
The extra workers are needed to staff sales floors, call centers, and shipping centers for online orders.
Toys-R-Us and Kohl’s also recently announced plans to hire more seasonal workers than in recent years.
