“Customers are encouraged to shop their local Charming Charlie store to purchase their favorite styles at discounted prices. These stores are well known for offering a wide array of women’s apparel and fashion accessories, beauty, gifts and more, all ingeniously arranged by color; making that perfect look fun and easy to find. We encourage customers to shop early to take advantage of the best selection of products. Given the popularity of this brand and the compelling discounts, we expect merchandise to sell very quickly,” a spokesperson for the consortium said.

It was not immediately clear how many jobs in New Jersey would be affected by the closures.
