New York & Company, a retail clothing chain, will permanently close at least four locations in Queens, according to various store employees throughout the borough.

The Astoria, Jamaica, Ridgewood and Bayside stores are all slated to close, according to employees at the respective locations. The only other store in the borough is at Queens Center Mall, which is currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Employees at the Astoria location said that it would shut at the end of August, while the closing dates at the other venues has not been established. All four stores currently have closing sales from 40%-80% off.

New York & Company‘s parent company, RTW Retailwinds Inc. filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy on July 13. Chapter 11 provides businesses with protection from creditors while they continue operating and develop a repayment plan.

RTW issued a press release earlier this month that said “a significant portion, if not all, of its brick-and-mortar stores” would close.

Store employees told the Queens Post that the company is closing all of its stores, although a RTW spokesperson could not be reached for comment.

Members of the advisory body will advocate concerns through means of community engagement by participating in one of two cohorts.
