Macy’s to close City Center Mall store
In another blow to the near empty city center mall, Macy’s has announced it will close its downtown store this fall.
The company says the City Center Macy’s will close in November.
Macy’s released the following statement: While Macy’s remains deeply committed to the Columbus community, the continued decline of customer traffic and business levels at City Center have led us to the decision to close the store this fall, said William McNamara, chairman and chief executive officer of Macy’s Midwest. We will be working with the mall’s owners to find the most productive long-term use of the Macy’s space. Macy’s owns 8 other stores in Central Ohio
