Topshop is the latest retailer to shutter stores. On Monday, Dressbarn’s parent company said it will close all of its roughly 650 stores.
In 2019 alone, US retailers have said 5,994 stores will close. That number already exceeds last year’s total of 5,864 closure announcements, according to a recent report from Coresight Research. Bankruptcies have also plagued retail brands including Payless, Gymboree and Charlotte Russe. Sears, a giant in the retail space for more than a century, filed for bankruptcy last October.
