Avenue is the latest retailer to call it quits.

The New Jersey-based chain, which got its start in 1983 as Sizes Unlimited and caters to plus-sized women, said this week it will close all 222 stores it operates. The stores are scattered across 33 states, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Avenue has struggled in recent years. At its peak, it had 500-plus stores.

To clear out remaining merchandise, a press release says prices will be slashed as much as 50%.

"Avenue shoppers will be amazed not only by the incredible savings, but also by the great selections and styles available at the closing sale," the release says, in part. "Given the popularity of the brand and the seasonal trends, merchandise is sure to sell out quickly. We are encouraging consumers to shop early and take advantage of these offers."

Avenue is the latest in a long list of retailers calling it quits in recent months, including Dressbarn and Payless ShoeSource. Others, such as CVS, JCPenney, Party City and Walgreens, are closing certain underperforming locations.
