Teen Clothier To Close Seven Area Stores

Apr 19, 2017


A teen clothing retailer is closing seven central Ohio stores as part of a restructuring plan.

Pennsylvania-based Rue 21 will close stores in Athens, Bellefontaine, Cambridge, Circleville, Jeffersonville, Lewis Center and Marion.  The company says declining traffic is forcing the closures and a greater focus on cyber sales. No word on how many people will lose their jobs.
