Major mall chains have struggled in recent years as consumer shopping habits shift online and to stores that offer some element of experience. Other stores like Things Remembered, Gap and Victoria’s Secret have announced plans to close stores last year. More than 10,000 retail stores closed nationally in 2019.

“We’ve been investing in malls where developers are investing,” Macy’s President Hal Lawton told investors in November. “Those stores continue to outpace the rest of our fleet.”
