Filene’s to close four Massachusetts stores

Boston -- Filene’s Basement will close four Massachusetts stores around Christmas time this year, according to a Tuesday report by the Boston Globe.

The struggling discounter will close stores in Braintree, Peabody, Saugus and Watertown, Mass., leaving three stores in the state – in Back Bay, Newton and Norwood – and 22 stores in all.

Syms Corp. bought Filene’s Basement out of bankruptcy in June 2009.
