I'm not surprised, but this closure has more to do with lack of imagination and willingness to invest in bricks and mortar on the part of Macy's than any shortcomings of the location. You don't have to look far to see the immediate area is thriving with best in class retailers doing good business all around it: Target, Kohl's, Aldi, Hobby Lobby, and Giant Eagle all within 1/4 mile. And Meijer invested in a brand new supercenter just last year literally across the parking lot. So the demographics and fundamentals for retail in this spot are good. The only thing missing for Macy's was a willingness to invest in updating the physical plant in order to compete. That store is the dingiest and most depressing and dated department store I think I've ever been in. Inside it looks like it hasn't been touched in 40 or 50 years. It's almost insulting to the public to expect them to shop there. It's not all that far removed from the Sears and Kmart experience of the past 15 years when they made a conscious decision to stop spending on the stores. How could they expect anyone to shop there given that environment and all the far more compelling offerings in the neighborhood? Good riddance.
