Abercrombie To Close More Than 100 Stores

ap070820040247_e.jpg

It's been a rough year for Abercrombie & Fitch.

After being infested with bedbugs and cutting prices to keep up with competitors the preppy retailer will be closing 60 stores by the end of the year and 50 more by 2012.

Abercrombie said the majority of the closures are due to expired leases, but we're sure having crappy sales didn't help either.

The Broadway revival of Hair is closing at the end of the month on June 27.

Sales started out strong when the show started back in March 2009, but have dropped considerably in the past few months.

But a national tour is lined up to begin in the fall starting in New Haven, Connecticut so you can catch it before it's gone!

Did U see Hair on Broadway?

Christina Ricci Tries Givenchy

We just don't know where to begin.

On Tuesday night Wednesday Addams Christina Ricci attended the closing of Marina Abramovic's 'The Artist is Present' at The Museum of Modern Art hosted by Givenchy.

Naturally, the actress wore a creation by the designer and we think she looks great - from the neck up!

We applaud Christina for wearing such a bold boobie shoowing dress, but we think it was just too much going on for someone like her.

What do U think???

Charming Shoppes Drop Some Excess Baggage

ap01071002222_e.jpg

And it's in the form of 100 to 120 retail shops!

Charming Shopppes, who owns plus-size retailers like Lane Bryant, Fashion Bug and Catherines will be shutting down over 100 shops this year. This is on top of the 160 stores that were closed in 2009!

Yikes!

So why the mass exodus?

CEO Jim Fogarty explains:

"Our first-quarter 2010 to-date same-store sales comp through eight weeks was approximately (4) percent, which, while still negative, reflects improvement across all of our brands from our fourth-quarter comps and progress in ourSpring assortments."

But it's not all bad.

Forgarty said that their online sales are up. He adds:

"Our Internet business was up 35 percent in that same time period, benefiting from the August launch of our new Web sites and the February launch of our universal shopping cart linking our four apparel Web sites."

Hopefully all the store closings will generate more online sales for them and not put them out of business completely!

Closing! That Was Quick

Filed under: Broadway Babies

You couldn't have been that bad, lil Abigail Breslin!

The closing date for the Broadway revival of The Miracle Worker was revealed this morning. The show will close on April 4th, after only 21 preview performances and 38 regular performances.

If it was bringing in any money, they sure would had it go on for a lot longer than that!

But that's showbiz!

Any of U seen the production? Thoughts?
