  • The closures are part of a previously announced plan by Macy's to shut 125 locations by 2023, which the retailer outlined last February.

Macy's is closing dozens of department stores this year, in a bid to move out of underperforming malls and trim a real estate empire that isn't as valued as it once was.

The closures, first reported by CNBC on Tuesday, are part of a previously announced plan by Macy's to shut 125 locations by 2023, which the retailer outlined last February. In turn, the company has said it plans to focus on investing in the best malls across the United States and grow off-mall.

Liquidation sales have already started at some of the locations that are closing. The rest are slated to start later this month. (See a full list of the closing stores and recently closed locations below.) In 2020, Macy's closed about 30 locations.

The closures by Macy's will add to the glut of retail real estate that has gone back on the market in recent years, pummeling landlords. In 2020, retail businesses from boutique apparel chains to department store operators announced more than 11,000 closures, according to tracking from the real estate firm CoStar Group.

Mall owners like Simon Property Group and Macerich have been tasked with filling a plethora of empty spaces. The pressures have been too much for some to handle: Two mall owners — CBL and Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust — filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in November.

Macy's currently operates 544 of its namesake department stores, along with 34 Bloomingdale's locations, 19 Bloomingdale's outlets and 166 Bluemercury shops, according to its website.
