Macy's closes for good, leaving St. Paul with no major retailer

Author:

Macy's in St. Paul officially closed its doors Saturday, leaving the city without a major retailer and 360,000-square feet of vacant retail space, KSTP-TV reports.

The business originated as a Dayton's department store in 1963. It became a Marshall Field's store before it's final transformation into a Macy's.

The city has not yet announced what it plans to do with the space.

MPR reports that St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman will not use public subsidies to entice another retailer to replace the department store.
