NEW YORK, Feb 27 — The iconic but struggling US department store Macy’s announced plans today to close around 150 locations by 2026, while concentrating investments in its more upscale Bloomingdale’s and Bluemercury brands.

The company, which had announced in January it would pare its workforce by 3.5 per cent, said in a statement the new strategy aims to open a “Bold New Chapter” to return 166-year-old Macy’s to enterprise growth.

Approximately 50 of the 150 “underperforming locations” will be closed by the end of the fiscal year, the company said, without mentioning how many employees would be impacted.

It said Macy’s would be “prioritizing investment in approximately 350 go-forward locations and the continued expansion of small-format stores.”
