Domestications Outlet Store at Towers Shopping Center in Roanoke is closing.
The store hasn’t set a closing date. Yellow signs in the store’s windows say that merchandise is marked down 50 percent off the lowest price.
A store manager directed media calls to the store’s parent company, Hanover Direct. Several calls last week to the Hanover Direct offices in Virginia were not returned. A call to corporate offices in Wisconsin was also not returned.
Sheryl Simeck, a spokeswoman for Rappaport Cos., which owns Towers, said the store is on a month-to-month lease and plans to close in March or April. Rappaport is working on leasing the space to a new tenant, but Simeck said she didn’t have any information she could announce.
Hanover Direct last year closed its 750,000-square-foot center distribution center on Hollins Road in Roanoke County, which resulted in the loss of 189 jobs, according to the Virginia Workforce Center website, which lists closures and layoffs.
The company later contracted with GSI Commerce to handle its fulfillment at a facility in Martinsville, creating 60 jobs.
