Robinsons-May, RIP

The last Robinsons-May stores in Southern California will close (or be "rebranded" as Macy's) after Christmas and the name will disappear. Robinsons and The May Company were on the Los Angeles scene as separate department stores for about a century. Closure of fifteen merged stores will leave gaping holes in a bunch of shopping malls, including Del Amo Fashion Center, Northridge Fashion Center and Santa Monica Place. In addition, seven Macy's are getting the axe. The Times has the locations that Federated Department Stores says will close:

Robinsons-May:

* Del Amo Fashion Center, Torrance
* Fox Hills, Culver City
* Glendale Galleria Glendale
* Los Cerritos Center, Cerritos
* Main Place (north), Santa Ana
* North County Fair (north), Escondido
* Northridge Fashion Center, Northridge
* The Oaks S.C. (south), Thousand Oaks
* Pacific View Mall, San Buenaventura
* Plaza Camino Real, Carlsbad
* Santa Anita Fashion Park, Arcadia
* Santa Monica Place, Santa Monica
* University Towne Center, La Jolla
* Valley Plaza S.C., Bakersfield
* Victoria Gardens, Rancho Cucamonga

Macy's West:

* Galleria at Tyler, Riverside
* Inland Center, San Bernardino
* Lakewood Center, Lakewood
* The Shops at Mission Viejo, Mission Viejo
* Montclair Plaza, Montclair
