Update: Goody's Family Clothing Store in Longview said that they will be closing in the next six to eight weeks.

The clothing store that does business in East Texas is one of the first economic casualties of the new year. Goody's Family Clothing will begin liquidating some of its stores across the nation this Friday. Last year, the store filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Goody's has four locations in East Texas: Tyler, Longview, Mount Pleasant, and Palestine. There is no word on what will happen to Goody's ninty-eight hundred employees.
