A popular clothing store has filed for bankruptcy and plans to close 95 of its 500+ stores nationwide and these 11 stores in New York.

This might sound familiar because it appears that every couple of weeks another company announces they have filed for bankruptcy. Rite Aid and JoAnn Fabrics have recently filed, earlier this week the restaurant chain Red Lobster hinted that they might be filing soon and now it appears a big name in clothing has filed for bankruptcy protection.
