CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. — Another national chain is dealing with some big financial problems, and it will be felt here in Western New York.

Bar Louie announced it has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and it is closing 38 locations.

That list of closures includes the one at the Walden Galleria, and another in Rochester. Both restaurants shut down without warning this weekend.

The company says those locations are casualties of dropping traffic at malls nationwide.
