Macy’s to shutter 150 ‘underproductive’ stores


Recommended Posts



The retail landscape is undergoing a seismic shift, with Macy’s, a stalwart of American department stores, announcing the closure of 150 stores. This news has sent ripples through the industry and is currently a hot topic of discussion online.


Macy’s decision to close these stores is part of a strategic realignment effort. The company plans to shutter 50 locations by the end of 2024, with an additional 100 stores slated for closure in the future. By 2026, Macy’s aims to operate with a leaner store count of 350 locations.


This move, dubbed by Macy’s as “A Bold New Chapter,” is designed to strengthen the Macy’s brand and allow it to focus its resources on its 350 “go-forward” stores. The stores being closed have been described as “underproductive,” suggesting that they were not meeting the company’s performance expectations.


Interestingly, while Macy’s is closing some stores, it is also planning to open new locations for its better-performing chains, Bloomingdale’s and Bluemercury. This indicates a strategic shift towards focusing on what’s working for the company and moving away from what’s not.


The news of Macy’s closing 150 stores is a clear indication of the changing dynamics in the retail industry. As consumers’ shopping habits evolve, retailers like Macy’s are being forced to adapt and innovate. But what do you think about this development? Do you believe Macy’s strategy will pay off in the long run? Share your thoughts and join the conversation.
