BALTIMORE (WJZ) — As fashion retailer Forever 21 heads through bankruptcy proceedings, it’s planning to close 178 stores across the U.S., including five in Maryland.

Stores set to close in Maryland include:

  • Towson Town Center: 825 Dulaney Valley Rd., Space #3025, Towson, MD 21204
  • Montgomery Mall: 7101 Democracy Blvd, Space 1252, Bethesda, MD 20817

In a letter to customers on the company’s website, Forever 21 said its Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection filing will allow it to restructure and stay in business.

“We do however expect a significant number of (our) stores will remain open and operate as usual, and we do not expect to exit any major markets in the U.S.,” the company said.
