Rue21 is Closing Over Half Its Stores Because of the Internet


My Thoughts: This is just getting crazy. Sears, The Limited, Wet Seal and BCBG already all bankrupt this year, and now Rue21? Is there a nudist movement afoot? Where are people getting their clothes?

Oh yeah, online.

The privately held company is shuttering nearly 400 stores, leaving it more than 700 stores in 48 states. It has 14 stores in the San Antonio metropolitan area, of which four are closing, according to its website. The four listed as closing are located in the Rigsby Road Shopping Center in San Antonio, The Forum in Selma, Floresville and Pleasanton.
