The Santa Barbara Macy’s department store in the Paseo Nuevo shopping mall will close by the end of the year, the company has announced.

Store closures are planned all over the country, and one of the locations to be closed this year is the Paseo Nuevo store at 701 State St., according to news reports.

The 141,000-square-foot store opened in 1990 when the shopping mall was completed, and it employs about 75 people.
