Retailing giants Macy’s and Sears Holdings are welcoming the new year by closing more of their doors for good. Macy’s is shutting down 68 of its department stores, and Sears Holdings is closing 150 Sears and Kmart locations.
Macy’s: Fewer stores, better experience
The Macy’s stores being shuttered are out of the current total of 730 Macy’s locations. The moves are part of the 100 store closures the company announced in August.
Macy’s says in a news release that it intends to “reinforce the strategy of fewer stores with better customer experience.” Over the next few years, Macy’s plans to close approximately 30 additional locations.
“Our plan to close approximately 100 stores over the next few years is an important part of our strategy to help us right-size our physical footprint as we expand our digital reach. We are closing locations that are unproductive or are no longer robust shopping destinations due to changes in the local retail shopping landscape, as well as monetizing locations with highly valued real estate,” says Terry J. Lundgren, chairman and chief executive officer of Macy’s, Inc.
Below is a list of the Macy’s locations slated to close.

Sears Holdings: ‘Tough decisions’ to close
Sears Holdings says the 150 stores it’s shutting down include 108 Kmart stores and 42 Sears locations.
“Many of these stores have struggled with their financial performance for years and we have kept them open to maintain local jobs and in the hope that they would turn around,” says Edward S. Lampert, chairman & CEO of Sears Holdings, in a statement. “But in order to meet our objective of returning to profitability, we have to make tough decisions and will continue to do so, which will give our better performing stores a chance at success.”
