A large downtown Charleston retail space soon will sit empty.
National women's apparel chain Talbots will close its 16,600-square-foot store at 261 King St. on Jan. 26, a store manager confirmed Friday.
The employee referred other questions to the company's corporate office in Massachusetts. A spokeswoman did not immediately respond for further comment Friday.
Talbots has other stores in the Charleston area in Tanger Outlets in North Charleston and near Mount Pleasant Towne Centre.
