After 25 years in business, DOTS stores will close all locations for good after filing bankruptcy.
DOTS stores locally include the stores on Buffalo road in Harborcreek and on Liberty Street.
The Ohio-based retailer of women's fashion is owned by Gordon Brothers Group. In a press release, the company praises employees, but states that competition from other retailers and a decrease in store traffic is to blame. Unsuccessful changes in marketing and product pricing also hurt the company.
Store closing sales for dots began today.
