My heart sank when I found out that one of my favorite retailers was closing 400 of its stores! Would our Valley Mall location be among the locations that teen retailer rue 21 was closing?

As it turns out, six of Washington's 18 rue 21 stores are closing:

  • Bellingham
  • Everett Mall
  • Renton
  • Richland
  • Both stores in Vancouver

Phew! The Valley Mall's rue 21 store dodged the bullet!
