A short but sweet posting on the 'The Limited' website says it all. 

The Limited, which had 250 stores nationwide is just the latest retailer to announce closures (see other stores here).

This is the posting on 'The Limited' website:

This isn't goodbye...We're sad to say that all The Limited stores nationwide have officially closed their doors. But this isn't goodbye. The styles you love are still available online...we're just a quick click away 24 hours a day.
