The Latest Disney News
After months of poor sales, the Disney's Character Warehouse Outlet Store in Midvale will close its doors on May 31.
The outlet is operated by liquidator Asset Management & Sales LLC, which sells various overstock and discontinued Disney merchandise, primarily from Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif. The merchandise, which includes apparel, toys and collectibles, is sold at a discount of up to 80 percent.
While the company stages a number of temporary sales of Disney merchandise over periods of six weeks to two months around the country, the Midvale location has been one of four year-round locations. The three others are in Las Vegas and in Fullerton and Pomona, Calif.
Part of the reason the store concept isn't working out in Midvale, she said, is the economic downturn nationally, which, coupled with higher food and gas prices, is causing many people to cut back. "It's definitely affecting us," Stump said. The Disney merchandise "is definitely not a necessity. People don't have to have it."
