RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Macy’s Inc. has announced that it will close three Richmond-area locations and three in Hampton Roads.

Multiple media outlets report the closings are part of 40 Macy’s stores that have closed or are closing across the country. Of the 40 stores, 36 will close in early spring. The other four closed last year.

The Cincinnati-based department store chain made the announcement Wednesday. In September, Macy’s said that it planned to close stores but didn’t say which ones.

The company says sales fell 5.2 percent in November and December at existing stores.

The Richmond-area stores set to close include two stores at Regency Square Mall and the store at Virginia Center Commons. In Hampton Roads, Macy’s will close stores at Chesapeake Square, Peninsula Town Center and Military Circle Mall.
