ATLANTA, GA — Jewelry and accessories retailer Charming Charlie has filed for bankruptcy and will close all of its 261 stores by the end of August, including 11 in Georgia. The news marks another closing in what's been a rough year for national retailers with stores in the Peach State.

The company's websites shows store locations in:

The specialty retailer became known following its 2004 opening for grouping women's fashion accessories by color. However, recent times have proved tough for Charming Charlie and the retailer closed 100 locations last year, Dallas News reported.

The retailer said the decision to file for bankruptcy again was made "after the implementation of numerous cost-reduction measures" which failed to stabilize the business and ensure profitability.

Charming Charlie's announcement comes a month after it was revealed that Dressbarn is closing 13 locations in Georgia and all 650 across the United States.

Other store closings announced this year include more than 200 Family Dollar locations in the state and five Georgia Mattress Firm stores.
