Jewelry thieves hit a Macy’s store in Hawaii only a few days after an announcement that location would close.

About $20,000 in merchandise was taken in the burglary, which happened at just before 4 a.m. Monday, HawaiiNewsNow reported.

The store is located at the Kukui Grove mall in Lihue.

Kauai police were alerted to the crime by a glass break alarm. Doors and several jewelry cases were broken.

Macy’s announced earlier this month that it would close five stores across the country, including the Lihue location. The company is also cutting 2,300 jobs across the U.S.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
