Final clearance sales are already underway at three stores, with 33 more joining in next week. Find out where they are.

Thirty-six more Macy’s stores will close early this year.

Macy’s Inc. announced this week that the closures are part of what the publicly traded company describes as “a series of cost-efficiency and process improvement measures.”

The 36 store closures slated for this year are in addition to four Macy’s closures that took place in 2015.

These changes are designed to reduce expenses by about $400 million while still allowing Macy’s to pursue opportunities for growth, the company said.

Macy’s Inc. operates Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s and Bluemercury stores and websites.

Macy’s Inc. chief executive Terry Lundgren explains in a news release:

“In light of our disappointing 2015 sales and earnings performance, we are making adjustments to become more efficient and productive in our operations. …

“In some cases, there will be short-term pain as we tighten our belt and realign our resources. But our eye is on a long-term vision of Macy’s Inc. as a dynamic retailer that serves existing customers and acquires new ones through innovative approaches to the marketplace.”

At three of the closing Macy’s stores, final clearance sales are already underway. These stores are located in:

  • Westfield Century City, Los Angeles
  • North DeKalb Mall, Decatur, Georgia
  • Roseburg Valley Mall, Roseburg, Oregon

Additionally, five new Macy’s or Bloomingdale’s stores are planned for or under construction in the following cities:
