The Wall Street Journal reported Jan. 8 that Macy’s plans to close 29 stores around the nation after a disappointing holiday retail season.
Macy’s closed its 138,000-square-foot store at Ortega and State streets in 2017 and it remains vacant, except for some seasonal pop-up businesses.
However, Macy’s corporate spokeswoman Emily Workman emailed today to say the the 29 closures do not include the La Cumbre Plaza location.
” I can confirm that our recent store closings announcement does not impact La Cumbre,” she wrote.
That’s good news for La Cumbre Plaza since Sears closed last year and a number of store fronts are vacant.
Some talk has surfaced about building housing in the plaza, but no solid plans have been developed yet.
