The COVID-19 pandemic has been especially hard on retail outlets, as another large retailer with locations in Killeen and Temple announced that they will be closing stores.

According to our news partners at News 10, L Brands, the parent company of Victoria's Secret and Bath And Body Works, announced that they will close some 300 locations across North America and Canada due to slow earnings.

According to the company's first quarter earnings report, approximately 250 Victoria’s Secret and 51 Bath & Body Works stores will be closed after first quarter fell 37 percent due to many locations being forced to close due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier this week, Texas based retailer J.C. Penny announced plans to close 250 stores after filing for bankruptcy protection. The company plans to close about 192 stores by February of 2021 and will close another 50 in 2022.

Where does that leave the locations of Victoria Secret, Bath & Body Works and J.C. Penney in Killeen and Temple? We don't know yet, but we'll keep you posted.
