In just the last week, two major chains have announced that they will be closing almost 200 stores and restaurants in total, both of which have locations in Ocean County.

First, Macy's announced that they will be closing 100 stores by the beginning of next year.

While they haven't identified specific locations yet, Macy's has stores at the Ocean County Mall, Monmouth Mall, and the Freehold Mall.

Ruby Tuesday is also closing almost 100 locations, 95 to be exact. With Ocean County locations in Lakewood and Toms River, the company hasn't released a list of specific restaurants that will be closing, but the ones that will be shuttering will be doing so much sooner, likely by next month.

As more information becomes available on specific locations that will be closing, and whether they'll impact Ocean County, we'll keep you updated!
