Going for a niche market of only pretty and thin people in North America as per former CEO Mike Jeffries has proven to be a bad idea for Abercrombie & Fitch, with 60 store closings this year.

Guess plans to close 70 of their US locations and plans to chase those EUROs that grow on trees in the International Markets.Sign makers are doing okay though.

In May, Bebe closed all 168 of their stores, and a few years ago, we touched on the troubles American Apparel was having when sex stopped selling, which left them with 110 American Apparel locations to be closed in 2017.

Hey, the Reaper waited long enough…
