Three area Macy’s closed Saturday

Three Macy’s stores at two local malls have officially gone dark.

The Macy’s Department stores at the Eastern Hills and McKinley malls rang in their final sales Saturday. A Macy’s-owned Home store also closed at McKinley Mall.

They were among 40 locations that closed in a nationwide cost-cutting and restructuring effort. The company had performed poorly during the crucial Christmas shopping season.

The closures put about 155 employees out of work. Just a handful of workers have been transferred to remaining stores at Walden Galleria and Boulevard Mall. The rest will receive severance benefits, the company said.
