Macy’s Inc. says it will close five Macy’s and four Bloomingdale’s stores that are underperforming.

Clearance sales will begin at the stores Sunday and run for 10 weeks.

More than 830 workers will be affected by the closings — 375 at Macy’s stores and 463 at Bloomingdale’s. But many may have the option of taking jobs at new stores the company plans to open.
