West Towne J. Crew closing

J. Crew at West Towne Mall is the latest local retail store that’s closing, as the clothing retailer plans to shutter as many as 50 stores nationwide in 2018.

West Towne expects the store to close by the end of January, according to a story in the Wisconsin State Journal.

This is far from the last major retailer shutting the doors on chunks of their brick-and-mortar operations this year. Here is a link to retail closings expected in 2018 from the Business Insider dated Dec. 31. Some have already come to fruition.
