Teen clothing chain rue21 is closing nearly 400 stores across the country, including those at the Trumbull Mall and at The Galleria at White Plains.
The Warrendale, Pennsylvania-based company recently listed preliminary fiscal year 2016 results of $54 million, down 49 percent from the previous year’s $105 million. For fiscal 2017, the chain estimated income at around $63 million.
In addition to Trumbull and White Plains, rue21 plans to shutter several stores on Long Island, as well as in Manchester, Meriden, Waterbury, and Westbrook. The closings will leave it with about 700 stores in 48 states.
