WEST FARGO - Rue21, a budget clothing store aimed at teens on 13th Avenue East, will soon shut down, joining hundreds of other stores in the chain, according to the company's website.

Other North Dakota stores, one in Grand Forks and two in Bismarck, are also slated to shut down as the company files for bankruptcy.

"It's true - we are closing some stores. It was a difficult but necessary decision," Rue21 announced Saturday, April 16, on its Facebook page. "We still have hundreds of locations across the country, and our website rue21.com, open for business."

Rue21 is based in the Pittsburgh area and its website says it will still have 700 stores open out of nearly 1,200.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported in early April that the company had been missing payments on its debt as it struggles to cope with consumer trends that have pushed many other retailers to close stores, including The Limited Inc., J.C. Penney, Macy's and Sears.
