On January 14th we heard the news that Christopher & Banks would be closing their Rochester store at the Apache Mall. That store has already started liquidation sales and will be closed by the end of February 2021.
The Children's Place was the one store that I always went to for Christmas and Easter outfits for my kids when they were little. The dresses were absolutely adorable and I could get my boys a matching hat, vest, or even a cute clip-on tie. My babies might have been throwing fits in the car on the way to Easter services at church but they looked picture-perfect while they cried their eyes out.
Just a few weeks ago, we heard the news that Bed Bath & Beyond were closing more stores. See the full list of stores impacted below, including one in Minnesota.
