Texas, Florida and California together have about 75 Charming Charlie stores.

A year after exiting restructuring fashion retailer Charming Charlie has reportedly filed its second bankruptcy filing, with plans to close all 261 of its stores. The announcement affects more than 3,000 full- and part-time employees across the country, all of whom could lose their jobs. This move is expected to allow Charming Charlie to "complete the store closing sales in a manner that maximizes recoveries for the debtors' estates and stakeholders", according to a court declaration by the company's chief financial officer, Alvaro Bellon.

Founded in 2004, Charming Charlie was known for arranging its merchandise by color, with its array including as many as 26 hues. The stores are generally located in malls, street-level shops and outlets. Charming Charlie's website is no longer taking orders.

According to Bloomberg, at the time Charming Charlie filed for bankruptcy, it only had $6,000 of cash on hand and it will be left with about $82 million in debt.

Hulu Quietly Adds 4K Streaming
After launching and removing 4K video from the service a year ago , Hulu is now offering UHD content again. Currently, 4K streaming is only available on the latest Apple TV and Google Chromecast Ultra .

After previously filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy beginning in December of 2017, the company restructured and closed approximately 100 stores, the filing states.

Rockland County continues to feel the brunt of retail closures. Hilco Merchant Resources and SB360 Capital partners are handling the liquidation. The retailer used that process to cut debts and slash other costs, but "these efforts simply were not sufficient to stabilize" the business and deliver profits, the company said Thursday in a court filing.

Other retailers have suffered similar fates in the current retail climate.
