The Macy's furniture stores in Novato and at Stonestown Mall in San Francisco will be closing.

Macy's made the announcement on Thursday, saying it had been reviewing its real estate portfolio across the country. 

"While closing a store is always a difficult decision because of the impact on our customers, our associates and the community, Macy’s is delighted to have served this community over the years," Monica Gubrud, Macy's Media Relations Manager said in a statement.

Both stores are expected to close mid to late March 2018.
