Charming Charlie to close all remaining US stores

Jewelry and accessories retailer Charming Charlie is closing all 261 of its stores as part of its latest Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.

If you go to Charming Charlie's website, this is what you'll see.

Charming Charlie is at 6520 N. Illinois The Shoppes of St. Clair Square shopping center in Fairview Heights.

Going out of business sales have started, and the retailer expects all stores to be closed by August 31, according to the filings.

There is no estimation of how many people the company employs at this time. The stores are generally located in malls, street-level shops and outlets. Charming Charlie's core customer base is women aged 35 to 55, Bellon said.

In December of 2017, the retailer announced they had filed for bankruptcy amid underperforming stores.

"These efforts simply were not sufficient to stabilize" the business and "ensure long-term profitability", according to the filing. It also faulted the impact of trade tariffs for reduced consumer spending, as well as poor weather earlier in the year for keeping would-be shoppers at home.
