Macy's sets final day for downtown Cincinnati store

Cincinnati-based retailer Macy's Inc. has set a closing date for its downtown Fountain Place store.

A Macy's spokeswoman confirmed that its department store location at 505 Vine St. adjacent to Fountain Square will close on March 25. Macy's (NYSE: M), which has headquarters in downtown Cincinnati and New York City, first announced that the store was closing along with 10 others on Jan. 3.

Fountain Place was built in 1997 by the Cincinnati Development Group, a partnership of Belvedere Corp., Towne Properties LLC, Duke Realty and Madison Marquette. Macy's lease was set to expire this year.

They still have six other locations in the region (Anderson Town Center, Kenwood Towne Centre, Northgate Mall, Florence Mall, Kenwood Furniture and Tri-County Mall).  I remember reading somewhere when they first announced the downtown one was closing that the Kenwood location is one of their most profitable ones in the country.

I think part of the delay for the 4th & Race apartments has to do with the eventual exit of Sak's  That will enable a footprint for a new development 50% larger than the current one.  I think the Hyatt's ballroom(s) are above the Sak's store so a new project would be fairly complicated.  Also, there is a parking entrance to the Hyatt's valet that presumably would have to stay open.

The Sak's valet guys:

O ok .  I think Saks will either move to Kenwood like or leave the market.

These 2 national retailers are coming to Over-the-Rhine



Two national retailers are opening locations in Over-the-Rhine.

Warby Parker and Bonobos have both signed leases for retail space along Vine Street in the historic neighborhood just north of Cincinnati’s Central Business District. The retailers took spaces in buildings controlled by Cincinnati Center City Development Corp.

Officials with 3CDC declined to comment. Messages were sent to both retailers but neither responded immediately.

National chains may be the only ones left that can afford the rent.

Maybe they are now allowing national retailers because they haven't had tremendous luck with local ones. There are a few that have been around for a long time and seem to be doing well, but there has also been a lot of failures. On the other hand, local restaurants have been doing great, so 3CDC might be less interested in having national restaurant chains (or, say, a Starbucks) open in OTR.

Well increased foot traffic for mall-type tenants can only be good for other businesses in the area, but these places come and go without many people noticing them because they can't hang illuminated signs.

I think the reason for the lack of large signs is 3CDC, not the city. I believe 3CDC told American Legacy Tours that they were only allowed to have a window cling and no proper outdoor sign, because they didn't want it to "clutter up" Vine Street and detract from the other nearby signs (Holtman's, The Eagle, etc.). Meanwhile on Main Street, UrbanSites restored the historic Tower Furniture sign with new neon and it back up on the building.
