2019 Store Closures You Need to Know About
2018 saw the closures of several famous brands, along with a wide number of store closures for active brands that are slashing stores to reduce their profit loss. 2019 is shaping up to continue this trend with an increasing number of stores announcing full or partial closures. However, a company’s loss is the consumer’s gain–if you’re looking for great shopping deals, you can shop at stores which are set to close in the near future. When you combine closing shopping deals with coupons and couponing methods, you can save even more money.
