As of yesterday afternoon, the clothes and merchandise at one area hot spot for shoppers were removed and the doors closed for good.

Wet Seal called it quits at the Hamilton Mall. It was one of 338 Wet Seal locations in the country that were closed due to financial conditions. Approximately 3,700 people lost their jobs nationwide. 173 Wet Seal stores still remain.

Obviously, many employees and shoppers are quite angry by the closing. Social Media blew up with trending hashtags such as #BoycottWetSeal and #ForgetWetSeal. Photos of handwritten letters were also posted, as well as taped to the closed doors at Wet Seal.

There is no word as to what store, if any, will replace the vacant space that Wet Seal left behind.
