We've known for a while now that Victoria's Secret is struggling. Sales have been slumping for the company as a whole, and last week they announced that 53 Victoria's Secret stores will be closing this year.

So...is the Victoria's Secret at the CherryVale Mall one of the 53 doomed stores? NO!

A spokesperson for the CherryVale Mall recently told Eyewitness News;

The Victoria's Secret store at CherryVale Mall will stay open.

Anyone else shocked that a Rockford store has actually escaped the retail apocalypse happening these days?

Will it only be a temporary, narrow escape? I certainly hope not, but only time will tell.
