Men’s Wearhouse has shuttered its Lakewood location.

The 279 E. Fairmount Ave. men’s apparel store closed its doors late last week; the sign was recently removed.

Parent company Tailored Brands Inc., which also owns JoS. A. Bank, announced in mid-July it planned to close 500 of its retail stores as the result of “unprecedented and industrywide business disruptions resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.”

In addition to store closings, Tailored Brands said it was reducing and realigning its store organization and supply chain as well as eliminating 20% of its corporate positions by the end of the fiscal second quarter.

The Lakewood location was not included in the initial list of store closings. The nearest store is now located in Erie, Pa.

“We have safely reopened almost all of our retail stores and look forward to helping our customers look and feel their best for their moments that matter,” Tailored Brands President and CEO Dinesh Lathi said in July. “Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its significant impact on our business, further actions are needed to help us strengthen our financial position so we can navigate our current realities. It is always difficult to eliminate jobs and say farewell to our friends and colleagues. I want to thank our teammates affected by these changes as well as those who continue to help us meet the challenges currently facing our industry and who remain dedicated to serving our customers.”
