Express shoppers might end up using their favorite rewards credit card a little less often in 2024: The clothing retailer is closing many locations across the country.

Express filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in April, and that resulted in stores closing from coast to coast.

The closings affect both Express and Express Factory Outlet stores that sell clothing, accessories, and other items. Check this list to see if your favorite Express store is disappearing.
