If you love shopping at Wet Seal in the Dartmouth Mall, you are going to be disappointed. The company has announced that they are closing all of their stores...immediately.

The Wall Street Journal obtained a letter dated from January 20th which tells employees that the company's 171 stores nationwide are closing.

Back in 2015 Wet Seal closed over 300 of their then 511 stores just before filing for bankruptcy protection.

Things clearly never turned around for the clothing chain and they have informed employees that they are now shutting down permanently and laying off all employees.

Slow shopping mall foot traffic is said to be the main reason for the clothing stores downfall, but at least one money minded tweeter saw a bright side...

No word on when the closing sale will come to the Dartmouth Mall, but is likely to be sooner rather than later!
