Macy’s, which purchased the building from Bon Marche in 2003, is selling it and will close the store down in February 2020. Clearance sales will begin in January 2020, with normal in-store holiday promotions beginning on Nov. 29. 

Employees were reportedly informed of the decision to close the store on Friday, Sept. 27. A Macy’s spokesperson confirmed the closure to the Times. The building, which has housed retail operations since 1929, was designated an historic landmark in 1988.
