PCC’s clothing division is closing its 100 stores nationwide, including two in Ohio, the company announced Wednesday.
The PCC clothing business, which includes clothing, accessories and home furnishings, has posted a loss of $9 million during the past fiscal year.
“These closures are part of the business’s overall efforts to better align with our business and product offerings and ensure that we remain a leader in the apparel industry,” the PCC said in a statement.
The closings will impact about 4,000 workers.
“PCC has always been focused on helping our customers get the best possible experience at all times.
We will continue to provide excellent service and quality to our customers with our new initiatives and we will continue our commitment to customer service and our commitment toward environmental sustainability,” the company said in the statement.
PCC is shutting down the PCCC clothing brand, which was the largest brand in the country.
The company said it would not continue to produce the PCT clothing, which is made of a blend of cotton, rayon, and rayon.
The Rayon and Cotton products are sold in PCC stores.
The PCC brands include PCC T-shirts, PCC jeans, Pcc boots, Pco shirts, Pcpa pants, and Pcc hats.
PCC is also closing PCCs flagship store in downtown Columbus.
In its announcement, PCT said it is “devastated” to close down its Columbus, Ohio, headquarters and stores.
“We are deeply saddened by these announcements.
Our PCC apparel operations were once one of the largest and most trusted suppliers of fashion to the nation.
We were a leader and the foundation of PCC.
PCT is a great place to work, and it was a part of our DNA from the beginning.
We are committed to doing all we can to make our Columbus store an even better place to shop,” the store said.
