New York & Company Announces it Will Close Most Stores
Sadly, it seems that stores going out of business will now be a regular occurrence.
Just last week, we told you that Bed Bath and Beyond and Sur La Table announced that they filed for bankruptcy and would be closing locations due to the Coronavirus pandemic. New York and Company made the same announcement yesterday, NJ.com shares. According to a quote from New York & Company in the NJ.com article, the retailer will "close a significant portion, if not all" of their stores. The bankruptcy is due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The article mentions that there are 25 New York & Company stores in New Jersey, and there is no word of how many NJ stores will close. The store locator on New York & Company's website shows that there are 4 locations in Monmouth and Ocean Counties: the Ocean County Mall in Toms River, Jersey Shore Premium Outlets in Tinton Falls, Jackson Premium Outlets in Jackson, and the Freehold Raceway Mall in Freehold.
I am sad to see New York & Company close because the store was a big part of my wardrobe in years past. Remember when they sold those comfy velour tracksuits? I had a tracksuit in almost every color they had.
If you don't feel like venturing outside of your home, you can still shop New York & Company online - NJ.com wrote that the store is having an online sale.
