Good news for Rochester company Hickey Freeman. Senator Charles Schumer announced Monday that a new Polo Ralph Lauren clothing line will be manufactured in Rochester.

Officials are calling it a major win for the local economy and the first of several new deals at Hickey Freeman that will boost production and bring up to 50 new jobs to our area.

The new Polo Ralph Lauren line is called "Blue Label". That line has been made in Italy but is now being brought back to Rochester as part of Lauren’s "Made in the USA" initiative.
