Macy's has announced that its two Enfield stores are among 40 that will be closing this year.
The company cited "disappointing" 2015 sales and earnings as reason for the closings, which were originally announced back in September of 2015. The main Macy's store at Enfield Square opened in 1971 and has 84 associates. The Furniture/Home/Men's store, also at Enfield Square, has 20 associates.
Macy's is also cutting up to 4,800 jobs after the disappointing holiday sales. The Cincinnati-based department store chain says sales fell 5.2 percent in November and December at existing stores.
Final clearance sales will begin on Monday, January 11 and will run for between eight to 12 weeks.
Macy's Inc., one of the nation's leading retailers, operates about 900 stores in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico.
