If you’ve had a tween in your household anytime in the last 20 years, you probably know the store Justice. It was huge for the not quite teenage set in the early ‘00s with all their rainbow-colored clothing and accessories and glitter galore and girls still like it today. But the brand has announced they’re closing their stores for good.
In August, parent company Ascena Retail Group Inc. closed nearly 600 of Justice’s 800 locations across the country, with plans to become a “primarily online platform.” They would still sell clothes, footwear, and accessories geared for girls between six and 12, but those plans have now changed. A rep for the company says all Justice locations are expected to close by early 2021.
The stores that are still open today are set to remain open through the holiday season. And the silver lining? Some locations have already started liquidation sales, with discounts of up to 90%. So if you need to do some holiday shopping for the pre-teeny boppers in your life, get in there for fuzzy notebooks, leggings, and sparkly unicorn goods on the cheap.
