43 Stores That Have Closed & You Will Never Be Able To Shop At Again
Millerâ€™s Outpost & Anchor Blue
You can trace the origins of Millerâ€™s Outpost with the founding of Millerâ€™s Surplus, which sold both military surplus and regular clothes, to 1948. Millerâ€™s Outpost itself was officially founded in 1972, and the chain grew rapidly. Teenagers and young adults loved the stores and there were hundreds of locations (mostly in shopping malls) by the 1980s. The company changed its name in the ’90s, although the stores â€” now renamed Anchor Blue, for their own brand of blue jeans â€” remained in business for some time to come. But even Anchor Blue went under, filing for bankruptcy in 2009 and closing all stores by 2011.
