Dean & Deluca has shuttered its two additional stores in Charlotte.
The specialty retailer issued a statement Thursday, saying it had made the “difficult decision” to close its store on Tryon Street in uptown and its south Charlotte location in the Stonecrest at Piper Glen shopping complex.
“Closing a store is always a difficult decision, because of the impact on our customers, associates and the community,” it reads.
Earlier this week, Dean & Deluca closed its flagship store at Phillip’s Place in SouthPark unexpectedly, after apparently defaulting on its lease.
The statement notes the additional closures “originated with the unanticipated closure,” of the SouthPark store.
No further details were immediately available.
Dean & Deluca has had a presence in Charlotte since 1997.
