UNDATED (WJON News) -- Macy's has announced plans to close a number of its stores over the next few years, however, it is not known yet which ones will be shuttered.

In a statement released to WJON News, a spokesperson says they plan to close about 150 locations over the next three years so they can prioritize investments in the stores that lead to a healthier future.

They say closing a store is never an easy decision.
