12 Arizona stores to close

PHOENIX -- Whitehall Jewelers filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in June and now it looks like it will be shutting all its stores nationwide, including 12 Arizona stores, by the end of the year.

The company is liquidating its jewelry worth an estimated $500 million.

Most of the stores are in various malls and the managers at the stores say they're not sure when their last day will be. Most expect to be closed by the holidays or when they run out of stock.
