A massive shoe retailer now plans to close several stores by 2026, part of a restructuring plan to improve its sales and traffic.

Foot Locker, under Chief Executive Mary Dillon, who has held the job for a little more than a year, has decided to close 275 of its ‘namesake locations’ by 2026 in addition to closing 125 (about half) of its Champs Sport stores, reports TheStreet.

The company has built its business on the back of Nike, which has been the leading player in sneaker culture.

It offers the biggest limited-edition releases and has the ability to drive people to stores.

That has been a mixed blessing for Foot Locker in recent years as Nike has built out its direct-to-consumer business reports TheStreet.

Unfortunately for Foot Locker, some of the sneakers that used to get sold through the company and other partners now get sold via Nike’s app.

The company has cut Foot Locker’s product, and that has been especially bad for the company’s Champs Sport chain.

“While the Champs Sports banner continues to be the most acutely impacted by changes in our Nike allocation, the team is getting sharper with the brand’s positioning as it appeals to that active athletes,” said Mary Dillon during the company’s earnings call.

While many people believe that malls are dying, the reality is that B and C malls have struggled while top-tier A shopping centers continue to thrive.

That’s causing Foot Locker to rethink its store portfolio.

The chain will close 275 Foot Locker locations by 2026.

That plan generally lines up with expiring leases.

The vast majority of the closing stores will be in less-successful malls, reports TheStreet.
