WASHINGTON —Macy’s posted what it called disappointing holiday sales and now says its Macy’s store at Landmark Mall in Alexandria, Virginia will be among the 100 stores it plans to close.
The 201,000-square-foot Landmark Macy’s opened in 1965. The closing will affect 119 associates who work at the store.
Final clearance sales at the local Macy’s will start Monday and run for as long as 10 weeks.
The store at Landmark Mall is the only D.C.-area Macy’s on the company’s current closing list.
Macy’s has a total of 730 stores.
Employees at stores being closed will be offered jobs at nearby stores where possible, Macy’s said, though it expects that 3,900 employees will be displaced as a result of the closures. The store closures, along with other planned restructuring, ultimately will cut 6,200 jobs from Macy’s payroll.
