Macy's Announces Store Closings for 2017

All Macy's Store Closings 2016, Going Out of Business Sale Locations
Barbara Farfan for About.com

After a 2016 holiday season marked by disappointing sales, Macy's announced the closing of 68 of its stores nationwide. The closings will result in the loss of 10,000 jobs. 

The closings are part of plan announced back in August 2016 to close 100 stores nationwide, representing around 15% of all Macy's department stores. The January 5 announcement detailed 68 of the stores that will be closing in 2017; to see if your local store is closing (and having a going-out-of-business sale), check out the full list of closing stores provided by Macy's.

In addition to these closings, the Chicago Tribune reported in April 2017 that Macy's was planning to sell at least a portion of its massive Chicago flagship store, with the hopes of generating more than $100 million for the company. 

A Brand in Need of a Refresh

Age and longevity are not necessarily detrimental to physical retail stores in general. Legacy is an appealing quality to certain segments of the department store consuming population. But the 36 Macy's stores that the company previously closed across 20 states bore little brand resemblance to any of the Macy's flagship stores, or the bright, shiny new Macy's stores that opened in 2016.  

Here are the stores that Macy's previously closed in spring 2016.
