CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Macy’s will close its store at Tri-County Mall in Springdale this year, the company said Wednesday.

A Macy’s spokeswoman tells FOX19 NOW the closure is part of the company’s strategy to pull out of weaker malls.

A full list of stores the company plans to close will be posted to the company’s website later Wednesday.

“The decision to close a store is always a difficult one, but Macy’s Tri-County Mall is honored to have served our customers and the community over the past 60 years, and we look forward to continuing to do so at Macy’s Anderson Town Center, Macy’s Florence and Macy’s Kenwood Towne Centre locations and online at or on the Macy’s app,” the company said in a statement.

“Regular, non-seasonal colleagues who we are unable to place at nearby Macy’s stores will be eligible for severance, including outplacement resources. A clearance sale will begin in January and run for approximately 8-12 weeks.”

This will be the third Macy’s store to shut down locally in the past few years.

The store in downtown Cincinnati shut down in 2018, and Northgate Mall shuttered last year.

Macy’s also announced last year it planned to close its headquarters in downtown Cincinnati as part of a national restructuring.

Macy’s pulling out of Tri-County Mall will leave the shopping center at Ohio 747 and Kemper Road just south of Interstate 275 without a major department store anchor.

The mall opened in 1960 and has been expanded several times, most notably in 1992 when the second level was added along with a fourth anchor store.

The shopping center, however, has undergone a slow decline in recent years with all the other major department store anchors - J.C. Penney, Dillards and Sears - leaving.
