The Charlotte Russe at the Mall at Fairfield Commons in Beavercreek had significantly more merchandise on racks, but employees of the store said they were unsure how much longer they will remain open. All Charlotte Russe stores are expected to close by the end of this week, and some have already shut down, according to a release from SB260 Capital Partners, the store’s liquidator.

Charlotte Russe deals are up to 70 percent off, according to the company’s Twitter.
