Macy's is Closing Down Many of Its Stores in 2017—Forever

Macy's is closing 68 of its stores in early 2017 as it fights both slowing sales and growing online competition. According to the company, nearly 4,000 employees will be affected by these closures.

The closures are part of a bigger plan to shut down 100 stores over the next couple of years. Those 100 stores represent 15 percent of the retailer's store base.

Final clearance sales for the closing stores will begin on Jan. 9 and run for about eight to 12 weeks.
