One of my favorite stores at Tanger Outlets The Walk is preparing to close, citing a lack of business at the store.

The Eddie Bauer Outlet, 2121 Atlantic Ave., offering the famous brand's men's and women's clothing, plans to close on Thursday, January 25.  An associate at the store said sales at the Walk location had been short of the company's expectations.

This is disappointing news if you like Eddie Bauer's fashions or, like me, the big and tall selections they offer. It seems simple enough, but if you are tall, it's hard to find a shirt long enough to be able to tuck in. Eddie Bauer has them, just not in Atlantic City much longer.

The one good bit of news about the Eddie Bauer store closing at Tanger Outlets is a 60-70%  store-wide sale until closing. As of last weekend, they still have a good amount of clothes in stock. Better hurry!
