Rue 21 announced Tuesday that it will seek Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection and close several stores nationwide!

According to the Killeen Daily Herald, the Rue 21 location in the Market Heights Plaza is set to close. While they don't have an specific final day set on the calendar, they will continue to honor all customer programs and gift cards.

About 400 stores are expected to close. According to the Herald, the chain has secured enough financing to ensure operations through the restructuring so they can continue to operate and pay employees in their remaining stores.

We will keep an eye on the situation and let you know if they release a final closing day for the Harker Heights location. If they start a liquidation sale, we will be sure to let you know!
