SAN ANTONIO – Two San Antonio Macy’s stores will close in the first quarter of 2021, company officials confirmed.

The Macy’s stores at Rolling Oaks Mall and the Shops at Rivercenter will close in the next few months as part of a cost-cutting plan that will shutter 125 stores over the next three years.

A clearance sale will begin in January and run for approximately eight to 12 weeks, a Macy’s spokesperson told KSAT.

“The decision to close a store is always a difficult one, but Macy’s is honored to have served our customers and the community over the past 28 years at Macy’s Rolling Oaks and 31 years at Macy’s Rivercenter,” said Macy’s spokesperson Lauren Vocelle Phillips.We look forward to continuing to do so at neighboring Macy’s locations.”

Phillips said that regular, non-seasonal employees who are not able to be placed at nearby Macy’s stores will be eligible for severance, including outplacement resources.

Macy’s operates four other San Antonio-area stores at South Park Mall, Ingram Park Mall, North Star Mall and The Shops at La Cantera.
