It's only been a week since The Limited announced it'd be closing a bunch of stores – including all Twin Cities locations. But the women's business retailer went and closed everything instead.

Just visit The Limited's website, and you'll be greeted with the message: "We’re sad to say that all The Limited stores nationwide have officially closed their doors."

If you're a fan of the clothing, there is good news: You can still shop online.

"We’re just a quick click away 24 hours a day," the website reads.

The Washington Post says The Limited had 250 stores nationwide. But with more people shopping online, the brick and mortar stores struggled to stay afloat

Original Story

If you're a fan of the clothing store The Limited, you better shop now because they're disappearing fast.

The Business Journals say all Twin Cities stores will close next week. So after Jan. 7, stores at Mall of America, Southdale Center, Twin Cities Premium Outlets, Ridgedale Center and Rosedale Center will be gone.

Store managers confirmed the closures to the Star Tribune, saying there are signs hanging in the windows that read "Everything Must Go."

It's not the just the Twin Cities, either. It looks like the days may be limited for this women's business apparel retailer.

Bloomberg reported earlier this month that Limited Stores may be planning to file for bankruptcy and possibly liquidate its business. That means the whole business would be brought to an end and its assets will be divided up amongst whoever it owes.

Forbes also reported the same, saying many stores' sales are final – a practice that is common when businesses liquidate.

According to Bloomberg, the retailer has struggled – just like many other brick and mortar stores – since people are spending more money on experiences than clothing. The popularity of online shopping has also taken away business.

Reports say The Limited had around 250 stores going into the holidays. Now there are "inventory blowout" sales at 95 stores across the country. The location at Burnsville Center made that list.

Online, everything is 50 percent off.

GoMN has reached out to the retailer's corporate headquarters and will update this story when we hear back.
