Macy’s is the next department store on track to close hundreds of stores around the country. The company announced that they will close 125 of its lowest-performing stores and lay off around 2,000 employees over the next three years.


Macy’s also said they will close down stores in shopping malls and focus on smaller stores in strip centers. Many of these smaller stores are called Market by Macy’s. These stores include Macy’s merchandise, local items, and local food and beverage options. The first new-concept store is set to open in Dallas, Texas.

CEO Jeff Gennette released a statement on the new closings. He said, “We are taking the organization through significant structural change to lower costs, bring teams closer together and reduce duplicative work. The changes we are making are deep and impact every area of the business, but they are necessary. I know we will come out of this transition stronger, more agile and better fit to compete in today’s retail environment.”
