Carter’s is permanently shutting down hundreds of stores. The children’s apparel and accessories retailer announced that it plans to close 25 percent of its brick-and-mortar fleet, or about 200 locations, as the leases of those units expire. Speaking to analysts, Carter's CEO Michael Casey said that nearly 60 percent of those outposts will likely be shuttered by the end of next year and 80 percent will shut down by the end of 2022. Carter’s currently operates about 850 stores in the United States, Canada and Mexico under its namesake banner and OshKosh B’Gosh brand.
