What major department stores are closing by you? In my area the first to close was JC Pennys. The second office depot, Sport Aurthty just close around April 2016 Macy will be closing their store. We still have a Sears but I know they are closing store nationwide. The mall in my area. Had JC Penney. Macy is in it and so is Sears. One major thing that making stores closed is on line sales are doing good .other reason in my area no jobs no money for people to shop.

Online shoppers, like myself, probably play a major role in down turn of business.

I don't shop a lot online except around the Holidays so I don't think it is because of my shopping habits. lol

I can't think of many on the top of my head but I've read on the news there are a lot.. I think the same you mentioned above. Macy's is which I am very sad about! Macy's is my favorite store.

Where I live we don't have any large department stores within miles. I do know that a JC Penny and Staples plus a Sears have closed in the bigger town closest to us. I have seen that Marcy's is going to be closing some stores.

The ones in our area did all their closing 3 or 4 years back, not the buildings remain empty - testament to a broken economy.

We have different department stores here, none of those you mention. Our closest department stores are "Manor" and "Migros", you do not have them in the United States.

Here a supermarket called Taste is the closest to our building. It takes me about five minutes going there on foot. In the past it was Jesco but it had changed to Taste several years ago. I like Jesco because they sell more products, not only the food but also the toys.

We have the smaller shops in the malls that are closing. The big retailers near me seem to be doing ok for now.

It seems the more people buy on-line is actually hurting the brick and mortar stores who once had throngs of people waiting to buy great deals !

We have a Sears that has gone under, and an entire mall in a poorer part of town that has been completely demolished. Who do you think are putting them out of business? My guess would be Amazon, my favorite store!
