Bankrupt Home Goods Retailer To Shutter 263 Stores Across 38 States

This Tuesday, the news broke that over half of Tuesday Morning’s home goods stores across the U.S. will be shuttered this year – just one month after they declared bankruptcy in court.

Closure sales are taking place in a whopping 263 stores situated across 38 states. The closures will have an impact on countless individuals and businesses nationwide.

After the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in Fort Worth, Texas on February 14th, it has been forced to implement closures.

Chapter 11 bankruptcy enables a company to restructure its debts and become privately owned, thus allowing them to reorganize.

In February, authorities announced their intent to file for bankruptcy in order to “enable the company to reduce its outstanding liabilities, obtain significant and necessary capital, and ultimately transform into a nimbler retailer.”

The home decor retailer lists each of the shop closures nationwide right on their website.

“Everything on sale,” ads read. “Stores closing. Save big on our original low prices.”

Last February, Tuesday Morning asserted in its bankruptcy filing that the closures were intended to help them focus on optimizing operations at its highest-trafficked locations.

“The Company believes this targeted approach to winding down unprofitable and underperforming stores will position Tuesday Morning to emerge from bankruptcy with a profitable, cash-generating store fleet that serves its most engaged and loyal customers,” the SEC filing reads.

Through these closures, the store count has been reduced to a mere 215 from an original 478.

“After considering how best to address Tuesday Morning’s exceedingly burdensome debt, we have determined that the best path to reorganizing and transforming the Company begins with a Chapter 11 filing,” stated CEO Andrew Berger.

“We look forward to taking steps that enable us to emerge as a stronger retailer that draws on a legacy of offering a unique off-price value proposition to our loyal customer base,” Berger added.

Should the company abide by all of Chapter 11’s bankruptcy regulations, they intend to transition into a private entity before September arrives.

Retail Dive recently reported that A&G Real Estate Partners are holding an auction to sell all 263 of their locations.

Sadly, this is not the initial time that the company has necessitated a bankruptcy filing.

During one of the toughest times in modern history, Tuesday Morning faced a fate they couldn’t outrun – bankruptcy. In March 2020, this retail giant filed for Chapter 11 and then proceeded to shutter countless stores amid the COVID-19 crisis.

Previously, the company had managed nearly 700 store locations.
