Another South Jersey retail chain is closing some of its local stores.

In this year of  bricks and mortar store shutdowns, the teen-trendy chain Rue 21 has announced plans to close 400 locations including Hamilton and Ocean County Malls.

According to the Press of Atlantic City, the Rue 21 store in the Cumberland County Mall will remain open.

The company’s website touts a young,fresh vision…

Headquartered just north of Pittsburgh, PA, we have over 1100 stores in 48 states in shopping malls, outlets and strip centers. By working directly with the market, we can react instantly to produce new trends and must-have styles that don’t exist anywhere else.

We’re young, fun and fresh. We’re energetic and playful. We believe in changing things up while staying true to yourself. And we’re passionate about giving you a voice and the right to express yourself the way you want. It’s why we never stand still. The freedom to be you is rue.

Now, the Rue 21 website is also promoting store closing sales.

The chain will be left with about 700 stores in the country.

In a Facebook post, Rue 21 said, ” It’s true – we are closing some stores. It was a difficult but necessary decision.”

2017 has been a very hard year for brick-and-mortar retailers.
