Clothing store will shut down on 27th of January
The employee said the corporate office had determined the store was not profitable enough to remain open. The employee mentioned he felt the company may not have been able to work out a rent agreement with the property owners. He said the store will be closing on January 27th.
A sale was underway at the store, with major discounts available. Store staff said this was not a liquidation sale, however. They said it was a regular sale event all stores are doing which just happened to coincide with the looming closure of the store.
Staff members were already searching for other jobs, the employee answering the phone told a reporter.
