Fashion Bug, a lower-priced women's clothing chain, is the latest retailer to start a “going out of business sale” as it clears out its entire $500 million inventory. The retailer is hosting its “Total Inventory Blowout Sale” with discounts as low as 50 percent, said a spokeswoman for Charming Shoppes Inc.

Fashion Bug has retained more than 5,900 workers at 600 stores in 43 states to help run the locations before each one finally closes. Fashion Bug has about 20 stores in Western Pennsylvania.

Earlier this year Charming Shoppes, which owns Fashion Bug, merged with Ascena Retail Group Inc. As a result, the company opted to shutter its Fashion Bug chain.
