Retailer, Charming Charlie will close all of its stores, after going bankrupt for the second time in less than two years.

Erie New Now put a call into our local store, in the Millcreek Mall, and employees confirmed the impending closure.

The chain expects the liquidation to take about two month, after filing for Chapter 11 Protection.

Charming Charlie has about 261 stores across the U.S., including the one locally in the Millcreek Mall.

Known for organizing its merchandise by color, the retail chain employs more than 3,000 full and part time workers.

Local employees are hoping for more information on the closure and liquidation process, sometime Friday.
