The company, which specializes in clothing for young adults, has not publicly announced any mass closings in recent weeks. However, they have been downsizing their portfolio of stores in recent years. BusinessInsider.com noted that the company closed up to 40 stores in 2019. The company even closed some of its flagship stores across the country, like their flagship storefront in New York, USAToday.com reports.
Locally, Abercrombie & Fitch operates stores in the King of Prussia Mall, the Freehold Raceway Mall, and the Cherry Hill Mall. We have not heard any updates on the status of those stores.
Popular fashion retailer, Express, announced plans to close 30 stores this month, but their store in the Oxford Valley Mall remains open. They did, however, announce plans to close their store in the Neshaminy Mall.
