WATERLOO — A longtime men’s and women’s clothing store known especially for its denim is closing its Crossroads location.

The email noted the last day for Buckle will be Saturday.

“It’s been our pleasure serving you,” the email read, noting no reason for the closure. “We appreciate your business and hope you’ll continue shopping with us.”

The email then pointed customers to the Buckle location at 406 Viking Plaza Drive in Cedar Falls.

The manager of the Waterloo Buckle said, after speaking with her district manager, she could give no comment. She noted the store would be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and confirmed it would not be open after that.

The manager of the Cedar Falls store could not be immediately reached for comment on how the Waterloo store’s closing would affect them.

Buckle began as Mills Clothing, a men’s clothing store, in Kearney, Nebraska, in 1948, according to the company’s history. It currently numbers 445 retail stores in 42 states.

It did not appear the Waterloo Buckle’s closing was part of a larger corporate shuttering of stores nationwide.
