In a statement, Macy’s Inc. called the closing of the Belmont store and the five others “normal course adjustments to its portfolio.”
Final clearance sales will start Monday at the Belmont Macy’s, according to the announcement, and will run for between seven and 11 weeks.
There are still Macy’s locations in Boston, Braintree, Burlington, Cambridge, Natick, Peabody, and Saugus. The company closed its Chestnut Hill store in 2011.
In Belmont Center, some are already speculating on what could move in next, but for others, it’s clear what Leonard Street needs.
“It needs Macy’s,” Ponte said.
