All Fashion Bug Stores to Close
All Fashion Bug stores are set to close by early next year.
Charming Shoppes Inc. owns Fashion Bug and posted the announcement on its website.
Ascena Retail Group recently acquired Charming Shoppes, and as part of the acquisition decided to shut down Fashion Bug.
Ascena says the decision is based on a strategic review of Charming Shoppes' operations.
Charming Shoppes closed 124 Fashion Bug stores in 2011. There are currently eight Fashion Bug stores left within 50 miles of Rochester.
