That Didn't Last Long

Filene's Basement may be closing its Snowden Square store, according to the Sun. The retailer first arrived in town in the fall of 2007.

The chain, known for its discounted brand names and annual bridal gown sale, is preparing to close three stores in Columbia, Hunt Valley and Towson, leaving the Inner Harbor location as its only spot in the Baltimore region.

The three Baltimore-area stores are among 11 locations nationwide that are expected to be shut down by the end of next month unless the retailer is able to negotiate lower rents with their respective landlords, Filene's general counsel, Julie Davis, said in a brief interview yesterday.
