Home goods retailer Anna’s Linens — which made its local debut less than three years ago — is closing three of its seven stores in Puerto Rico, this media outlet confirmed Tuesday.

The three stores to end operations by Sunday are in Plaza del Atlántico in Arecibo, Plaza Río Hondo in Bayamón and Rexville Plaza, which was the newest location the Costa Mesa, Ca.-based retailer had opened in Puerto Rico since it arrived to the retail market in 2012.

Stores in Trujillo Alto, Caguas, Ponce and Mayagüez will remain open, this media outlet learned.

The retailer’s product mix comprises bedding, bath, window treatments, shower curtains, kitchen curtain, down comforters and bath accessories, among other things.

Attempts to reach stateside corporate officials were unsuccessful Tuesday.
