Fast fashion retailer H&M has announced it would be opening a new store in the Detroit, Michigan area that will include a plus sizes section. The new 20,000-square-foot store will be located at Troy’s Oakland Mall and will open this fall. The retailer has said it is expanding in the US and we’re hoping this means their plus sizes online are doing well.
The new store will offer clothing and accessories for men, women, kids, maternity and plus size women. There is currently one existing store in the metro Detroit area that carries plus sizes so this is pleasant news for plus size women in the area. [Detroit Free Press]
Simply Fashion, a women’s retailer, has officially started their “Going Out of Business” sales in all of their 243 stores. The retailer announced it was shutting its doors a few weeks ago when they filed for Chapter 11, seeking bankruptcy protection with plans to liquidate the chain. The family-run company opened in 1991 and has store locations in 25 states, including Detroit, Miami, Chicago, Nashville, Baltimore and Dallas. Simply Fashion sold clothing, accessories, shoes and lingerie catering to women ages 25 to 55, offering sizes 0 – 36. [Wall Street Journal]
It seems Dots is gone for good. The retailer filed for Chapter 11 last year and closed. But a new owner bought the company and reopened some stores plus relaunched the website. However, that was short-lived and Dots is now officially closing its doors. The website has already been taken down.
Dots stores have now launched “Going out of Business” sales and if you want to score some last minute deals at both Dots and Simply Fashion, you’ll have to act fast. Both announcements mentioned that sales will run until June 30 or even sooner, depending on how fast merchandise sells. [Wall Street Journal]
Simply Fashion gift cards will be honored throughout the “Going out of Business” sales.
