140 Vanity Stores Will Close, Minot Included.

The Fargo-based Vanity is closing its stores across the country. Board Chairman Jim Bennett, in an exclusive interview with KFGO News, says the women's fashion retailer has filed bankruptcy and will close 140 stores in 27 states.

Vanity employs as many as 1,700 people, depending on the time of year, with more than 100 at its corporate headquarters in Fargo. Bennett says competition from internet retailers was a significant factor in the decision.

In North Dakota, Vanity has locations at West Acres in Fargo along with Grand Forks, Bismarck, Minot, Williston and Dickinson. Stores in Minnesota are in Alexandria, Bemidji, Duluth, Rochester, Virginia, Willmar and Mankato. It also has three stores in the Twin Cities.
