After 83 years in business, distressed specialty retailer Mark Shale will close its three remaining Chicago stores because it can’t find a strategic partner.
The high-end retailer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy court protection in August in Chicago, representing its third tour of bankruptcy proceedings. At the time, all three stores stayed open as the firm tried to find a partner to help strengthen the business and keep it in operation. The previous filing was in March 2009, during which the eight-unit chain shuttered five stores. Its first bankruptcy was in November 1995.

"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.
