Macy’s Inc. Sets Major Round of Liquidations

Macy’s Inc. is embarking on going-out-of-business sales at 31 Macy’s stores and one Bloomingdale’s location, most of which will commence next week.

The liquidations are expected to last for eight to 12 weeks before the stores permanently shut down.

Another five Macy’s locations will liquidate later this year.

The closings are part of the Macy’s Inc. plan, revealed in February 2020, to close about 125 of its least productive stores over the next three years. Included in the 125 closings are about 30 stores that were unveiled in January 2020.

Macy’s, long considered over-stored partly stemming from its 2005 acquisition of May Co., determined the closings based on a store-level assessment of each unit’s overall value to the fleet, including predicted profitability based on consumer trends and demographics. The 125 stores represent $1.4 billion in annual sales.

Since the announcement, the company shut down Macy’s units in Park Place, Ariz.; Commack, N.Y., and Harrisburg, Pa; Macy’s furniture stores in Oakbrook and Woodfield, Ill.; a Macy’s furniture clearance unit in Eastland, Ohio, and the Bloomingdale’s Medinah Temple store in Chicago.

In addition, two stores, in Southwest Plaza, Colo., and Dover Mall in Delaware were converted to omni-service centers.
