BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Macy’s store in Baton Rouge’s Cortana Mall is one of 40 locations the department store chain will close over the next two to three months.

The Advocate reports (bit.ly/1mEG1Xy) a clearance sale at the 243,000-square-foot store will begin on Monday and will run for eight to 12 weeks. The store has 108 employees.

Macy’s announced in September it would close 40 locations and released the list of stores that will shut down on Wednesday. The Cortana store is the only Macy’s in Louisiana to close.

The Macy’s location has been one of the anchors of Cortana since the mall opened in 1976.
