(NECN: Chestnut Hill, Mass.) - The Macy's store in the Chestnut Hill Shopping Center in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts will be closing its doors.

The closing is part of an ongoing process to prune underperforming locations, while also opening new ones.

Associates at the Chestnut Hill store were notified today.

A final clearance sale at the Chestnut Hill store will begin on Sunday, January 9 and will run for approximately 10 weeks.

Associates displaced by the store closing may be offered positions in nearby Macy's stores where possible. Regular full-time and part-time associates who are laid off due to the store closing will be provided severance benefits.

The store was opened as a Macy's in 2007 after being converted from a Bloomingdale's.

Macy's is closing a total of three stores at this time (the other two are in Austin, TX, and Union City, GA). After the closings, the company will operate 806 Macy's stores across the country.
