In August 2016, Macy's announced that it would close 100 stores due to a decline in sales and since then, Macy's has been closing down certain stores when their leases expire. Macy's has not confirmed whether the latest closures are part of the 2016 announcement or if they are additional closures.

You can find your nearest store on the Macy's store locator. If your local Macy's isn't on this list, check with them to find out if they are planning to close. Alternatively, if your local Macy's is closing, check with the store to find out when its clearance sale will begin.

Other retailers closing multiple stores include Kmart and Sears, who in November 2019 announced that they will close at least 96 stores by February 2020. More recently, Pier 1 Imports announced that it would be closing nearly half its 942 stores, with 450 closures.

Robert Riesbeck, Pier 1 CEO and Chief Financial Officer, said in a statement: "Although decisions that impact our associates are never easy, reducing the number of our brick-and-mortar locations is a necessary business decision."
