Rue 21 has announced they are filing for bankruptcy and closing 400 stores. Will it affect our locations here in Idaho?


There are ten Rue 21 locations here in Idaho and only one that has a confirmed closing. The location in Rexburg which will close their doors in June.


I haven't seen any indication that the three locations here in the Treasure Valley will close. Rue 21 is at the Boise Towne Square Mall, at the Treasure Valley Marketplace in Nampa, and Meridian Crossroads in Meridian.


According to USA Today, Rue 21 has 1,179 stores across the country and 15,800 employees, although most of those are part-time workers.
