Dillard's Announces Closure Of Multiple Underperforming Stores... Atlantic Station On That List?
Dillard's department store announced this week that it will multiple underperforming stores and said they will limit new store openings in 2009 to 5 as they attempt to attract more affluent shoppers, adding more upscale products and labels. On a recent (accidental and unfortunate) visit to the shopping disaster that is Atlantic Station I visited the Dillard's and it seemed as though I could count the number of shoppers with two hands, clearly the number of associates outnumbered shoppers by at least 3 to 1. Its a wonder they have stayed open as long as they have, for that location is just not right for their store.
Did someone say Closing Sale?
