Dead Bug

I just received an e-mail from Fashion Bug informing me that their website will officially close on September 5.

"Uh-oh," I thought to myself, "If the website is going offline, what about their brick and mortar stores?"

A quick Google revealed that the new owner of the chain plans to close all 600 Fashion Bug stores by early 2013.

That saddens me. Over the years, I have done a lot of shopping at The Bug. Their prices were very reasonable and some of my nicest clothing came from their stores.

I guess I can take advantage of their going-out-of-business sales, but my heart won't be in it.


  1. That saddens me also I enjoy web shopping on their web-site.

  2. Wow! Too bad because the Fashion Bug has given lots of cross dressers their female flair!

  3. I read that Dress Barn has taken those brands that Fashion Bug stores carried. Found Dress Barn is very trans friendly and also Lane Bryant stores.

    All Fashion Bug stores around the twin cities Minnesota closed a few months ago. Managed to purchase some ankle boots at almost fifty per cent off on the going out of business sale.
