These locations will shutter soon

Retailer to shutter 125 stores over three years


Pier 1 Imports is closing up to 450 locations, which includes all of its stores in Canada, the retailer said Monday as it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

More than a month after the Fort Worth, Texas-based home goods retailer said it would reduce its store footprint “to better align its business with the current operating environment,” Pier 1 announced it filed for bankruptcy.

In a news release, Pier 1 said it has “closed or initiated going-out-business sales at over 400 locations,” and the Canada stores are included in the previously announced 450 figure.

A list with 331 U.S. store closings was posted on A&G Realty Partners’ website. According to Pier 1, the company is assisting with store closures and lease modifications.

The bankruptcy filing isn’t unexpected.

In April 2019, after Pier 1 announced it could close as many as 145 stores, about 15% of its nearly 1,000 locations, S&P Global Ratings warned that the “potential for a bankruptcy filing or debt restructuring is continuing to increase” for Pier 1 as its retail performance continued “to deteriorate significantly.”

USA TODAY reported in December that Pier 1 was one of several struggling retailers that faced the fight of their lives in 2020.
