Macy's Inc. Leaves Richmond Heights-Poses Potential Economical Threat to CityRICHMOND HEIGHTS-OHIO: Macy’s Inc. announced it’s decision to close their store in the Richmond Town Square earlier this month, and the day for final closing is approaching rapidly. The large department store will be officially  out of their large two story building on Sunday, March 22nd, and have already begun pricing all merchandise within the store at 60-80% off.

Despite the large retailer deciding to shut their doors, Christel Best, the economic development director for Richmond Heights, expressed her most optimistic beliefs regarding  new opportunities Mary’s removal from the building will bring to the community. It should be noted that these statements are contradicted by the fact that earlier this month, four other large retailers, including Wet Seal, Claire’s, Radio Shack, and Icing, announced their preparations to close shop. That aside, Ms. Best is maintaining that Macy’s Inc.’s  resignation at their current location and willingness to  open up both stories to good, reliable tenants should the right inquirer come along, is a plus for the mall’s economy. Currently, the 162,190 square-foot retail building and conjoined 9 acre lane, is for sale at a hefty $4 million, however no potential buyers have been selected at of yet.
