The planned exit comes as Macy's, like other U.S. companies, struggles with the fallout of the coronavirus pandemic that has forced it to furlough almost all of its 130,000 employees and tap its credit-line.

Price will continue to be a "critical" part of the plan to emerge out of the pandemic, Chief Executive Officer Jeff Gennette said in a statement on Tuesday.

Price will step down from her role as finance head on May 31, but will remain as an adviser through November, the company said, adding that an external search is underway for a replacement.

Shares of Macy's, which have lost nearly two-thirds of their value this year, were up nearly 10% in premarket trading.
