VIRGINIA — Macy's department store announced in November it will close 10 stores nationwide in January 2022, and delay closing about 60 other stores on a shutdown list, according to CNBC.

These 10 stores are part of the 125 Macy's stores total the company already announced it plans to shutter by 2023; 65 of those stores already closed. The big-box giant has not yet said where the 10 stores slated to be shuttered are located, which raises questions about the fate of the locations in Virginia and the District of Columbia.

The most recent Macy's store closings in Virginia, according to WSLS, were six locations in 2016: Chesapeake Square in Chesapeake, Virginia Center Commons in Glen Allen, Peninsula Town Center in Hampton, Military Circle Mall in Norfolk, Regency Square main store in Richmond, and Regency Square furniture/home/men's store in Richmond.

Macy's currently operates one store in the Downtown Center in Washington, D.C., as well as Virginia locations in the Pentagon City and Ballston areas of Arlington, two Fairfax sites, plus Fredericksburg, Manassas, McLean, and more sites.

Macy's said it is reconsidering when it will close the remaining 60 stores because online sales do better in areas where there is a physical Macy's store.

"The delayed closure of certain stores allows us to maintain a physical presence in the market, which is critical to our top line growth," said Macy's Chief Financial Officer Adrian Mitchell, according to CNBC. "Digital performance is stronger in the markets where we have stores."
