Charming Charlie to re-open several Texas store after going into administration
Dec 2, 2019
New York – U.S. fashion retailer Charming Charlie has announced it will be re-opening some of its Texas-based stores after it went into administration this summer.
Charming Charlie announced on social media earlier this week the opening of Houston-area stores in Baybrook, First Colony, and Willowbrook malls in March 2020.
Additionally, Charming Charlie will open in Stonebriar Center in Frisco and The Parks at Arlington in Arlington. The retailer plans to open 15 stores nationally by early next year.
Charming Charlie Holdings Inc. filed for Chapter 11 protection in July in Delaware with plans for going-out-of-business sales at all 261 stores, while reporting some 82 million dollars of debt. More than 3,000 full-time and part-time employees were affected by the liquidation.
Charming Charlie founder Charlie Chanaratsopon, who acquired the company’s trademarks out of bankruptcy auction in September, said at the time that he planned to bring the business back to life as an online-heavy retailer with a handful of stores and pop-up shops in select locations nationwide.
