Wet Seal is closing the rest of its 171 remaining stores, including the one at Alderwood Mall.
The move by the women’s clothing retailer comes just two years after its first round of closures, when it shut down 338 stores and filed for bankruptcy.
The Wall Street Journal obtained a letter dated Jan. 20, in which company leaders inform employees that Wet Seal’s headquarters in Irvine, California will be permanently shutting down and all of its employees will be laid off.
The Alderwood store has not posted an exact closing date, but closeout sales are on now.
Wet Seal is located near JCPenney inside the mall, 3000 184th St. S.W.
