WARRENDALE, Pa. -

A Pittsburgh based teen fashion retailer that is already closing two stores in Mercer County has filed for bankruptcy and says more stores may close.

On Monday, Rue 21 filed for reorganization under Chapter 11 bankruptcy rules.

The company announced last month that it was closing 400 stores, including the Shenango Valley Mall location and the store in the Grove City Premium Outlets.

Sixteen Ohio stores were on the closing list, but the company announced this week that it may close even more of its remaining 779 stores.

Rue21 has locations at the Eastwood Mall in Niles, the Southern Park Mall in Boardman, Summit Square in East Liverpool and West State Square in Alliance, Ohio which were not included on the list of closings released in April.

Two Shenango Valley Mall anchor stores, Sears and Macy's, closed their doors last month.

Sears made the closing announcement in December.

Macy's followed with its closing plans in January.
