CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA (WHTM) — Sports apparel and merchandise store Bleacher Bums announced on Dec. 28 that it will be closing two of its five locations.

According to Bleacher Bums’ announcement, it will be closing locations at the Colonial Park Mall in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and at the Francis Scott Key Mall in Frederick, Maryland. These closures are due to changes in the retail landscape over the last few years.

“We want to thank all of our Harrisburg and Frederick customers for their business. We appreciate each and every one of you. We hope that we’ll continue to see you shopping at one of our three remaining locations,” Bleacher Bums said in a Facebook post.
