Remember Justice, the colorful clothing store that used to be in malls and was popular in the early 2000s? Well, it looks like it might be going away, and we’re here to explain why.
What Is Justice?
Justice is a store that sells clothing, underwear, sleepwear, swimwear, and cool stuff for girls aged 6 to 12. It used to be in shopping malls, but now it’s mostly online.
A Bit of History
Justice used to be part of a company called Tween Brands. Back then, they had around 900 Justice stores, and some of them used to be called Limited Too. They sold clothes for girls and women in different sizes.
Changes Over Time
In 2016, Justice was doing great, with over 1,000 stores in many countries. They were even selling their stuff in Walmart Canada. But things have changed.
Justice’s parent company, Ascena Retail Group, had some problems. They decided to close down many of their stores because not as many people were shopping in malls anymore, even before the pandemic.
Ascena Retail Group filed for bankruptcy in 2020. They got a $90 million offer for Justice’s name and things related to it. They also had to close many of their other stores.
The Future of Justice
Justice is moving online, which means you won’t find their stores in malls anymore. They’ll continue to sell things online, so you can still get your Justice gear.
When Will Justice Stores Close?
All Justice stores are supposed to close by early 2021, but they’ll stay open for the holiday season in 2020. After that, you’ll have to shop for Justice stuff on their website, Shopjustice.com.
What About the 600 Stores?
Unfortunately, more than 600 Justice stores in the United States have already closed because of the bankruptcy of Ascena Retail Group.
So, Justice is changing, and you might not see their colorful stores in malls anymore. But you can still get their trendy stuff online. Fashion is always evolving, and Justice is just going through some changes like many other stores.
What’s Going on with Justice?
Remember Justice, the store with cool stuff for girls? Well, a lot has happened recently, and we’re here to fill you in.
Closing Down Stores
Ascena Retail Group, the company that owns Justice, decided to close around 600 of the 800 Justice stores across the United States. They made this decision in August. They also said that Justice would mostly become an online store, where they would sell clothes, shoes, and accessories for girls between 6 to 12 years old.
Closing by Early 2021
The plan is to close all Justice stores by early 2021. But don’t worry, the stores that are still open will stay open during the holiday season. Some of them have even started having big sales with discounts up to 90%.
Both in stores and online, Justice offered big discounts to get rid of their inventory. When they first announced the store closures in July, people rushed to get some fantastic deals. They made sure to tell customers that all sales were final, and you couldn’t exchange items. As the stores get closer to closing, the discounts usually get even bigger. So, many folks kept coming back to their local Justice store until it closed.
The good news is that Justice will continue to exist online. They had special sales, like Black Friday, with discounts as high as 70% on some items. They often offer free delivery for orders over $25 and have online clearance deals with discounts of 50-60%.
Justice isn’t disappearing completely. Bluestar Alliance, another company, paid $90 million for Justice’s name and stuff in an auction. They plan to bring Justice back in a big way. They’ve launched a website called Shopjustice.com, where they sell clothes and accessories for young girls. They want to make Justice even better and more accessible.
Bluestar Alliance has big plans for Justice. They want to sell more than just clothes and accessories. They’re thinking about adding unexpected things like tech gadgets, home items, and more. They want to make Justice a one-stop-shop for all the cool things girls like.
Justice at Walmart
Guess what? Justice has made a comeback in Walmart stores too! They’re selling more than 140 Justice products in 2,400 Walmart stores all over the country. You can find clothes, jewelry, accessories, bedding, backpacks, stationery, skateboards, and tech stuff from Justice at Walmart.
Walmart and Justice have even more plans. They’ll update the styles with the seasons, and in September, they’ll start selling shoes and pet accessories too. Walmart is opening more stores, so you’ll find Justice in even more places soon.
So, Justice might be changing, but it’s not going away. You can still find their awesome stuff online and at Walmart. It’s an exciting time for Justice and the girls who love their products!
