Macy’s Inc said on Wednesday it would hire 80,000 temporary workers for the holiday season, in line with last year’s initial hiring, and deploy more hands to cater to the avalanche of online orders expected in the shopping period.

The department store chain said 23,500 seasonal workers would be employed at its online fulfillment centers across the United States, 5,500 more than last year.

The rest of the hires would be based in call centers, shop floors at Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s and will support the company’s annual Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York.
