Feb. 2, 2018 By Tara Law

Shoe retailer Aerosoles has closed its Continental Avenue store, seven months after its parent company declared bankruptcy.

Aerogroup International filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in June and announced at the time that it would be shuttering 74 of its stores, including three of its four locations in Queens. The company closed its Queens Center Mall, Astoria and Bayside stores last year.

The brand said at the time it would keep open four flagship stores in New York and New Jersey, including its 107-22 Continental Ave. store.

The Forest Hills store, however, closed last week.

The company could not be reached for comment.
