It's time to pour one out for yet another brick-and-mortar store, and stock up on infinity scarves before they're gone FOREVER.
In the bankruptcy filing notice, Charming Charlie announced that liquidation sales will begin immediately and that all remaining stores (261 of them, nationwide) will be closed on or before August 31, 2019. This will result in the loss of thousands of jobs in 38 states as the stores prepare to close permanently.
This is the company's second bankruptcy filing since 2017, and it looks like this time, it's for good. All sales will be in-store though, so don't try to stock up online.
In case you've never been to a Charming Charlie store, you're missing out on some serious gift-giving opportunities. Technically, it's a fashion jewelry and accessory store, but most of its customers would say that it's much more than that. It's the sort of store where almost everything you see reminds you of someone you know. With most of the prices under $20, it's easy to get lost within its walls, filling your basket with trinkets and things that sparkle in the sun.
If you absolutely need your Charming Charlie fix, head to your local store SOON ... as in, this weekend ... and stock up. Christmas is, after all, just over five months away! You can't go wrong with any of their scarves and necklaces – one size fits all!
For more information about the store closings, read the official bankruptcy notice. You can still use the Charming Charlie website to find the store closest to you, but you won't be able to order anything online.
