SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (AP) - A department store plans to relocate a large plaque honoring World War II veterans when it moves out of a suburban Detroit shopping mall.

Macy’s spokeswoman Andrea Schwartz tells the Detroit Free Press (https://on.freep.com/1ykg399 ) that the plaque will be on public display at another Detroit-area location when the store closes at Northland Center mall.

Schwartz says the company hasn’t decided which of the eight stores it will go to but says the memorial is leaving the Southfield site with Macy’s.

J. L. Hudson Co. erected the plaque in September 1947 at its downtown Detroit flagship store to honor about 1,150 employees who served during World War II. The store closed in 1983.

The marker spent a decade in storage before store officials moved it to the Northland Center.
