Hickey Freeman will remain in Rochester. That’s the news from Authentic Brands Group. The company purchased Hickey Freeman during an auction of the factory's parent company HMX.

Authentic Brands says it wanted to continue producing the Hickey Freeman brand which was founded in Rochester in 1899.

This move saves more than 450 jobs.
