We have been seeing a trend in major stores closing all across the nation as confirmed by
When Macy’s announced on September 8, 2015 that it has plans to close 35-40 under-performing brick-and-mortar retail stores in the 2016 calendar year, it was not the first of the largest U.S. retail chains to reveal future plans to close physical store locations in the 2016 and beyond. In fact, long-term store closing plans had already been announced by retail chains like Office Depot, Walgreens, Aeropostale, American Eagle Outfitters, and The Gap.
Consumers continue to see more and more store closings all across the nation, switching from brick-and-mortar to click-and-order. We will be sharing more information about the changes occurring within the retail industry as well as latest news on partner stores and affiliates with SHOP•COM as we continue supporting consumers and our Preferred Customers. Even though stores are physically closing around the country, more and more are moving toward a more internet presence and with that comes additional benefits in reducing, or at the very least, holding costs stable, and when they partner with SHOP•COM we help make it a win-win for everyone.
