Charlotte Russe Holdings Corp. and its subsidiaries announced in a news release that they successfully sold the brand and intellectual properties to YM Inc., a North American fashion house.

This acquisition marries a beloved brand with a sophisticated retail platform and provides Charlotte Russe a path to grow in the future,” Dayna Quanbeck, interim CEO of Charlotte Russe, said in a statement. “We thank our loyal customers and employees for sticking by us through the past several months.”

Charlotte Russe’s social media pages and its website tease a brand-new online shopping experience. The online store initially closed soon after it was announced that the company filed for bankruptcy.

Charlotte Russe is well-known for offering affordable, trendy clothing, shoes and accessories for young women.
