Clothing Retailer Now Announces Unexpected Closure of All Locations

A clothing retailer now announces the unexpected closure of all locations as it embarks in a new journey to go fully online.

Outdoor Voices will reportedly shut all of its stores on Sunday, employees of the activewear company have said.

Four employees at four different stores, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed the March 17 closures to The New York Times.

The publication said it had seen at internal Slack message sent to employees on Wednesday notifying them that the chain “is embarking on a new chapter as we transition to an exclusively online business.”

The message, other reports suggested, doubled as instructions for what to tell customers.

The message, The Times reported, said products in stores will be discounted 50%.

Current and former Outdoor Voices employees at stores in Austin, Denver, Atlanta, Charlotte, New York, Houston and San Diego also confirmed the news to Axios reporters.

One Austin employee who worked on the company’s marketing team told the publication they and other employees were laid off on March 12 and it was “very sudden”.

“Store teams were told by their manager β€” who were also laid off β€” that effective as of end of day Sunday that every single one of our Outdoor Voices stores are closing as well,” the unnamed employee said.

Two of the employees the Times spoke to said they were not offered severance.

Outdoor voices has 16 retail locations, according to its website.

The company was founded by Ty Haney in 2014.

Haney left in 2020 and has since made her feelings very clear: “It’s kind of sickening to see how low it’s gotten,” she said in an interview with The Cut in August 2023.

“I feel sad for it.”

A famous restaurant is now hit with an eviction notice after being sued for thousands in overdue rent, sources confirm.

CHICKEN Guy!, a restaurant branded by Guy Fieri, is subsequently facing multiple eviction threats, reports The-Sun.

The restaurant, located in Winter Park, Florida – just seven miles outside of Orlando – owes $38,507.72 in past-due rent, interest, and late fees, per a lawsuit obtained by local Fox affiliate WOFL.

The landlord issued a three-day notice on February 15 to pay rent or vacate the premises.

The same notice was issued again on March 4.

A complaint and eviction notice was then filed by the landlord in Orange County court on Tuesday, March 12.

The landlord is suing for over $50,000 in damages, including overdue rent, future unpaid rent, accelerated rent, late charges, taxes and fines against the landlord, and attorney fees, per local CBS affiliate WKMG.

The restaurant is being sued alongside Earl of Sandwich and Planet Hollywood, the three of which fall under the ownership of Robert Earl.

All three restaurants were part of the same lease agreement as Chicken Guy!, which is why they’re named in the legal complaint.

“Chicken Guy! features one-of-a-kind, all-natural fresh, chicken tenders, hand-pounded to maximize crunch and paired with a wide selection of delicious sauces,” reads the restaurant website.

“Brined in fresh lemon juice, pickle brine, and buttermilk, and infused with fresh herbs, these tenders deliver on flavor and texture.”

Meanwhile, popular restauranteur and Food Network host Fieri was set to host the Flavortown Fest on June 1 and 2 in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio.

However, the event was abruptly canceled.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Fest, initially planned for June 1-2 in Columbus, OH, has been canceled” read a statement issued to local NBC affiliate WCMH-TV.
