After receiving a lifeline, bankrupt discount retailer fights to keep all 464 home goods stores open.
A retailer that offers discounts is battling to keep its 400+ locations open as it faces liquidation.
This week, Texas received a bankruptcy reorganization filing from troubled chain Tuesday Morning.
The judge’s approval of an investment company’s $15 million loan appears to have provided a lifeline for the retailer, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Two times in the past three years, Tuesday Morning has declared bankruptcy, and executives have warned that the chain must restructure its “exceedingly burdensome debt.”
The well-known retailer now only has 464 locations, down from 700 just three years ago.
It happens after the business declared its intention to close 265 locations across the United States.
As they announced plans to close the stores, executives asked the court to reject hundreds of store leases.
Arizona could lose 10 stores, while Alabama could lose at least eight.
According to Insider, more than 30 Tuesday Morning locations in California may close.
Additionally, 24 discount stores in Texas and Florida will stop operations.
There are Tuesday Morning locations in 40 states, and the closures will affect 38 of those states.
According to Best Life, four locations have already closed in Dallas, Meridian, Mississippi, Sacramento, and Clarksville, Indiana.
