Holiday sales were up at Macy’s, but the company is downsizing. It’s planning big layoffs and will shut down five stores.

Some 2,500 workers will lose their jobs, according to the company.

The employees being let go will be from all areas, from check-out counters to the central offices.

The changes are designed to save the company 100-million dollars a year.
