43 Stores That Have Closed & You Will Never Be Able To Shop At Again
Anyone who was a teenager in the 1990s and early 2000s knew Wet Seal, an ultra-trendy clothing store that catered to tweens and teens. We all wanted to shop there, looking through the latest trends in too-tight tops and fashionable jeans to the beat of whatever music was making radio waves. Wet Seal had a short, bright run, from its founding in 1995 to unexpectedly firing hundreds of workers with no notice in 2013, to its eventual bankruptcy in 2015. All store locations were closed by 2017. The chain was sold, and since then has reopened as an ultra-trendy online store. But todayâ€™s teens will never know the pleasure of shopping at their local mallâ€™s Wet Seal.
