Neiman Marcus announces BIG store closings

Like we didn’t see this one coming. Neiman Marcus, the over priced retailer, has announced they will be closing 25% of their ‘Last Call’ discount centers. The news shouldn’t be too shocking as we reported almost two weeks ago they would be the next victim of the Retail Apocalypse. According to this USA Today report the company is closing the following locations.

*Philadelphia Premium in Pottstown, Penn.
*Potomac Mills in Woodbridge, Va.
*Arizona Mills, Tempe, Ariz.
*Gurnee Mills, Gurnee, Ill.
*Livermore Premium, Livermore, Calif.
*Arundel Mills, Hanover, Md.
*Philadelphia Mills, Philadelphia
*Great Lakes Crossing – Auburn Hills, Mich.
*Lenox Marketplace, Atlanta
*Horchow Plano, Plano, Tx.

Neiman Marcus Group said Tuesday it will close 10 of its 37 off-price Last Call stores, a move to focus and steer more resources to its main business of running high-end department stores.

The 241 employees whose jobs are removed will be able to apply for other jobs in the company, it said.

“This decision is about optimizing our Last Call store portfolio to deliver the best customer service and freeing up resources to support new initiatives for our full-line Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman channels,” said Elizabeth Allison, senior vice president of Last Call.
