HOUSTON (CBS Houston) In an announcement made Thursday, retailer Macy’s will close its Downtown Houston store. The store which is 791,000 square feet and has 138 employees, originally opened in 1947 as a Foley’s.

Additional Macy’s locations scheduled to close include stores located in: downtown Honolulu, HI; Pasadena, CA; Belmont, MA; and downtown St. Paul, MN.

According to officials with Macy’s, employees at the stores that are closing may be offered positions in nearby stores where possible. Eligible employees who are laid off due to the closings will be offered severance packages.

Macy’s has an internationally renowned flagship Herald Square location in Midtown Manhattan, New York City and operated over 850 other stores in the United States as of mid-September of 2012.
