Trans World Entertainment Corporation, which owns the Record Town and Saturday Matinee retail chains, announced that since sales of up to one-fourth of its stores are poor, they will be closed.

A. that since sales of up to one-fourth of its stores are poor, they will be closed.
B. it is closing up to one-fourth of its stores, which accounted for its poor sales
C. it was closing up to one fourth of its stores because of poor sales.
D. to be closing, on account of poor sales, up to one-fourth of its stores.
E. having poor sales, such that up to one-fourth of its stores will be closed.

I think we need "that" to connect clauses.

All options look terrrible, but going with C.

A they refers to? since is incorrect
B which refers to stores, not one fourth of stores
D to be closing is plain wrong
E wordy....

Me too going with C, clear and succinct! However I missed "that" in C, but it was the best that was available. The "they" in A put me off.

I agree, that would have been better. But those are not the cards dealt to us.

Will go with C.

Clear and concise.

(C) is definately concise. Doubt we`ll get an OA, so just go by board consensus on this one.
