NILES, Ohio (WYTV) – The Wet Seal store at the Eastwood Mall in Niles closed at the end of business Tuesday and will not re-open, according to a mall spokesperson.
The news comes as Wet Seal announced the closure of hundreds of locations nationwide.
The store’s lease with Eastwood Mall expires at the end of January. Wet Seal’s corporate office told the mall that they would not be renewing the lease agreement, according to Spokesperson Joe Bell.
The mall’s real estate department has been in discussions with another national retailer that is interested in leasing the space that Wet Seal is vacating, Bell said in an email.
A call to the Southern Park Mall to see if the Wet Seal store there had closed was not immediately returned. Wet Seal did not appear in the mall’s online list of stores.
