Cincinnati-based Macy’s Inc. will close six stores and open nine new stores by fall 2014. In early-spring 2013, the company will close its Bloomingdale’s Fashion Show Home Store in Las Vegas and Macy’s locations in Pasadena, Calif.; Belmont, Mass.; downtown Honolulu; downtown St. Paul, Minn.; and downtown Houston. The planned new store openings include three new Bloomingdale’s stores and Macy’s stores in the Mall of Victory Valley in Victoriville, Calif. (spring 2013); Gurnee Mills in Gurnee, Ill. (fall 2013); The Mall at Bay Plaza in The Bronx, N.Y. (fall 2014); University Town Center in Sarasota, Fla. (fall 2014); and Shops at Summerlin in Las Vegas (fall 2014). The company also is opening an all-new store in Westfield South Shore in Bay Shore, N.Y., to replace an older store in the same shopping center, and is expanding its presence in Fashion Show in Las Vegas with a new Macy’s Men’s Store to open in spring 2013. Once all of these changes have been implemented, Macy’s will operate 798 stores in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam. Bloomingdale’s will have a total of 37 full-line and home stores, as well as 13 Bloomingdale’s Outlet stores.
