"Macy's plans to close 125 department stores over the next three years, an admission that a fifth of its locations cannot thrive as shoppers buy more online and make fewer trips to malls," according to a Wall Street Journal report. "The company is also cutting roughly 2,000 corporate jobs, or 10% of corporate and support staff, and closing several offices."

Macy's stock traded lower by 1.64% at $16.20 in Tuesday's after-hours session. The stock has a 52-week high of $26.33 and a 52-week low of $14.11.
