According to the Journal’s Dana Mattioli, Suzanne Kapner, and David Benoit, the talks are preliminary and a deal is not assured. The report cited sources close to the matter.

The report also states that the two companies are exploring additionally ways to cooperate outside of a merger, including Hudson’s taking on some of Macy’s real estate portfolio.

Hudson’s Bay is also the owner of Retailers Saks Fifth Avenue and Lord & Taylor.

Macy’s has faced declining sales while it struggles with the impact of online shopping on its stores. The company has also been on a spree of store closures, with another 68 closings being announced in January.
