Victoria’s Secret To Close More Than 200 Stores
Victoria's Secret has announced it will close roughly a quarter of its North American stores this year. The company says sales are down 46% because of the coronavirus pandemic. An article on USA Today explains: "Victoria’s Secret has 1,091 stores in the U.S. and Canada with 909 U.S. Victoria’s Secret stores and 144 Pink stores. The company says it will close 235 U.S. Victoria’s Secret and three Pink stores. It also plans to close 13 of its 38 stores in Canada."
At this time, it is not clear which locations will be closed. The Rochester store, located inside the Apache Mall, is currently listed as "temporarily closed" on the mall's website. Don't jump to any conclusions just yet though. There are several stores on the mall's directory that are still closed despite the mall reopening last Monday.
