The company that owns two stores in the Wenatchee Valley Mall, Victoria’s Secret and Bath and Body Works, announced Thursday that it will be permanently closing many of its stores in the coming weeks.

L Brands said it will close 250 Victoria’s Secret stores and 50 Bath and Body Works in the United States and Canada.

A spokesperson for the company said Friday they could not comment yet on whether the East Wenatchee stores are on the list for closure.

The L Brand stores had been struggling even before the COVID-19 pandemic forced most of them closed in March.

The company said more closure announcements are likely to follow.
