According to CNN, the closure of the stores comes after 2018 sales fell by 7 percent.

On Wednesday, L Brands also released a report of their fourth-quarter and full year earnings showing the decrease.

The question now is, what locations will be impacted?

When ABC13 Eyewitness News reached out to L Brands, a representative stated they will "not be releasing a list of the 53 stores closing, which will occur over the next year."
