Established back in the early '80s, this well-known company has now filed for bankruptcy with nearly 100 stores closing throughout the country, including several here in New Jersey.

The Clothing store Express is located in many malls throughout the state.

ABC7 New York states:

"With the company struggling to gain traction with consumers, it has been obvious for quite some time that bankruptcy was the inevitable destination for Express," Neil Saunders, Managing Director of GlobalData, said in a note Monday.

Store closing sales are expected to begin right away.

Express at the Moorestown Mall has been around for decades and recently switched to Express Factory.

The store reminds me of my teenage years, walking the mall on a Friday or Saturday night and always stopping at Express. It's one of those stores that's been around forever. It's sad to see all these locations closing throughout the state.

It doesn't look like the one at the Cherry Hill Mall will close, moving forward hopefully that doesn't change.

ABC7 New York states:

"All of its brands' online channels will continue to accept orders and all brands will otherwise also fulfill orders, process returns and redeem gift cards and store credits in-store. Customer benefits related to the Express Insider program will remain unaffected," the company said.

These are the long-gone NJ mall stores we miss the most

With so many trends of the 1990's back in style, it's a great time to look back at a strong foundation of 80's and 90's culture — New Jersey mall shopping. Some stores were a highlight, every trip.
