Fashion retailer Charlotte Russe filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Monday with plans to close about 94 stores and put itself up for sale.

The mall chain announced it's closing stores nationwide, including its location at Valley West Mall in West Des Moines.

It's unknown what day the store will close. The location at Jordan Creek Mall in West Des Moines will remain open.

Charlotte Russe is located in the center of the mall in its lower level. The fast-fashion women's retailer is known for its affordable clothing. 

The company, which also controls Peek stores, said it had received a bankruptcy financing package worth up to $50 million to help it continue operating. 

Banana Republic also recently closed at Valley West Mall after opening in 1999.
