LANESBOROUGH — Macy's — an anchor tenant of the Berkshire Mall since 1994 — will be closing, the company announced on Wednesday.

The Berkshire Mall Macy's is among 40 stores nationwide that will close in the coming months, according to the national department store retailer. The company runs 770 stores.

The local store's 58 employees were informed of the company's decision on Wednesday.

In September, Macy's announced that it planned to close "underperforming" stores in early 2016. Four of those stores have already closed, while the remaining 36 will start clearance sales on Monday, Jan. 11, and run for the next eight to 12 weeks.

Macy's is the second of the Berkshire Mall's anchor stores to close in the last four months. Best Buy closed on Oct. 31 after the company declined to renew its lease with the mall's management company.
