Is your Macy’s store closing?

First come the holiday season sales, then the after-Christmas sales -- and then, typically, the store-closing sales, as retailers take stock following the holidays and shutter their locations that performed the weakest.

Department store giant Macy's has just announced that 40 of its stores are closing their doors for good. The list includes 4 stores that bit the dust by the end of 2015.

"In today’s rapidly evolving retail environment, it is essential that we maintain a portfolio of the right stores in the right places," the company's chairman and CEO Terry Lundgren says, in a statement. He adds that the stores marked for closure "are unproductive or no longer robust shopping destinations because of changes in the local retail shopping landscape."

Will you be losing your local Macy's? Or, looked at another way, where will you find bargains at going-out-of-business sales? Check the list below.

"As for the comments about this being a Christian nation: please, what is this, 17th century New England with a dunk tank in town square?"

Thanks for proving those who's comments you are criticizing are correct, if the management of Macy's think like you do, because, no, it's the United States and doesn't have to be 17th century England for this to be a Christian nation. That you don't know the heritage of this country is quite evident by your comment. Were you not aware that the founders of this country said you have inalienable rights that were given to you by your Creator (not my words, but the words of Thomas Jefferson and the founders of this country) and who were only of one century later than the 17th century, the 18th century? Do you not know that without those Christian founders this country would not exist. And Thomas Jefferson drove home the point of our Christian foundations when he said:

"God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever."

If you want to surrender your inalienable rights and liberties by being ignorant of their source, as it is believed the top management at Macy's are willing to do, you can. I refuse to.

Macy's is getting what it deserves. Their service is horrible, there is no one to answer a question and no one to wait on you. There is no customer service department anymore. It is sad! Bring back LS Ayres. They knew how to treat their customers. The customer was always first.

BULLETIN: I WORK AT MACY'S so I can tell you that we are free to say whatever we choose, including Merry Christmas. The haters posting here obviously don't know the facts. Plus, stores are contending with increasingly popular online shopping, which explains why salespeople are sometimes hard to find. I don't like the scarcity either when I'm shopping but I understand it better now. The stores are doing whatever is necessary to STAY OPEN! As for the comments about this being a Christian nation: please, what is this, 17th century New England with a dunk tank in town square?

Were they allowed to say "Merry Jesus Christ my lord and savior's birthday" instead?
