Chief Executive Officer Joyce Mitman Welken says the Easton store will close in January or early February, a victim of changing tastes and the economic slump.
An inventory clearance will begin Nov. 19, and five employees are expected to lose their jobs.
Welken says the Bixler's in Whitehall Township will continue operating, and the company is pursuing options to open a new store along the Route 33 corridor.
