Perfumania is closing a quarter of its stores

The company hopes bankruptcy will allow it to renegotiate its leases and focus on high-performing stores "to establish a foundation for sustainable long-term growth," Perfumania CEO Michael Katz said in a prepared statement.

Perfumania plans to focus on boosting its online sales to offset its losses.

Retailers such as Bebe, Staples ( SPLS ) and JCPenney ( JCP ) have closed thousands of stores this year.

There are some positive signs for retail: the second quarter brought some unexpectedly good earnings from many brands.
