Despite being the largest footwear retailer in the United States, Foot Locker is set to close 110 of its stores nationwide this year. After closing 147 stores in 2017, Foot Locker is set to continue its closures as consumers are increasingly moving to online shopping. Signaling the changing retail landscape, the footwear purveyor is set to close its struggling stores to open 40 new stores in thriving locations.
