The Limited will close all locations after this weekend.

The Limited will close all brick-and-mortar stores at the end of the weekend.

The women’s clothing retailer announced it will close all locations after Jan. 8, and will only operate online. The company had already closed three of its local stores.

In late December, The Limited closed locations at The Greene in Beavercreek, The Liberty Center and Tri-County Mall in Cincinnati. The stores offered 90 percent off all inventory.

The company has sent multiple emails to customers, promoting up to 50 percent off online items. The stores are also selling fixtures and equipment, according to the company.

Earlier in December, the company announced more than 240 employee lay-offs at the company’s headquarters in a Columbus suburb. The company alerted the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services of the 248 layoffs at the New Albany headquarters and said they could start as early as today.

This isn’t the only retailer to announce closures recently. Ann Taylor, Kmart, Macy’s and Sears have all shut down hundreds of store locations.
