Clarks shoe store closing at Circle Centre

The Clarks shoe store at Circle Centre mall is closing this weekend.

Saturday will be the store’s last day of operations, an employee said.

A sign posted at the store directed shoppers to visit Clarks’ Fort Wayne store. Clarks also has outlet stores in Edinburgh and Michigan City. It has more than 1,000 stores worldwide.

Clarks is the trade name for C. & J. Clark International Ltd., an England-based company founded in 1825. The company’s U.S. subsidiary, C. & J. Clark America Inc., has its headquarters in Waltham, Massachusetts. IBJ was unable to reach company officials on Friday morning.

The downtown mall has hemorrhaged tenants in recent years, including the loss of its two department store anchors. Nordstrom closed in 2011, and Carson's closed in 2018.

Other closures in 2018 included Godiva Chocolatier, Andrews Jewelers, Brookstone, Teavana and Brow Bar.
