5 Charlotte Russe stores in Pittsburgh area among those closing

Renatta Signorini

Charlotte Russe is closing all of its stores, including five in the Pittsburgh region.

Liquidation sales started Thursday, according to a message posted on the retailer’s website.

Local stores among those listed on the retailer’s website include mall-based locations at Westmoreland, Monroeville, Pittsburgh Mills, Robinson and Ross Park.

The young women’s clothing chain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and announced Feb. 4 the closure of 94 stores, which then included only the store at the Mall at Robinson. The retailer said at that time that it planned to liquidate if no buyer was found by Feb. 17.

USA Today reported that the company is in negotiations to sell its intellectual property.

The chain operates 500 stores around the country and employs 8,700 people.

Other retailers have taken a similar route this year. Payless Shoe Source is closing all stores, including 13 in the Pittsburgh area. Gymboree, Sears, Gap and J.C. Penney all have announced partial or full closures.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
