Stein Mart will close its Orchard Park store Feb. 17.
The store at Crossroads Centre on Southwestern Boulevard is at the end of its lease term and "was not meeting expectations," according to Linda Tasseff, director of investor relations for the company. A going-out-of-business sale has begun and the liquidation is expected to last until mid-February.
The store opened in 2002. Stein Mart has one other local store on Transit Road in East Amherst. The company said it is making every effort to relocate as many of its 40 employees as possible.
