Lane Bryant/Fashion Bug Closing Stores

Lane Bryant/Fashion Bug Closing Stores

Charming Shoppes Inc., parent to Lane Bryant, says it plans to close more than 10 percent of its stores nationwide this year.
Bensalem, Pa.-based Charming Shoppes Inc. (Nasdaq:CHRS), whose holdings also include the Cacique, Fashion Bug and Catherines Plus Sizes brands, said the closings will hit 240 of its 2,064 stores. About half of the stores to be shuttered will be its Fashion Bug nameplate, which has nine Phoenix-area locations, according to the company’s website...

I stopped wearing their clothes years ago, even before the years I was too big to fit in their clothing. Some of us don't want to dress like hookers or like someone's grandmother from 1970. I worked at a Fashion Bug Plus when I was in college, when I still fit into the clothes, and even with a discount, saw little I wanted to wear.

  1. I love Fashion Bug! I am heart sick that they are closing. There are so many clothing department stores that I won't go to because they all look like old peoples clothes. I hope and pray that yuou will be putting in a store like this one in the Battle Creek area. Thank you, Elaine Kinstle
