Liz Claiborne Inc. said Tuesday it plans to shutter its 87 Liz Claiborne branded outlet stores in the U.S. and Puerto Rico in the next few months.
Consequently, Claiborne expects the meaningful operating losses related to this business will be eliminated in early 2011, when the closures are expected to be completed. The company’s other outlet stores in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, within its direct brands group, aren’t affected by the move. At the end of the first quarter, the U.S. outlet unit count was 46 for Lucky, 31 for Juicy Couture, 29 for Kate Spade and one for Kensie.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
