Bankrupt Pier 1 is closing stores but Kennewick isn’t on the
The Kennewick outlet of Pier 1 Imports is not on the list of
hundreds of stores slated for closure.
Pier 1 Imports Inc., based in Fort Worth, Texas, filed for
protection from creditors under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in
Virginia on Feb. 17. The petition sets
the stage for a sale.
The widely anticipated move follows a Jan. 6 announcement
the struggling the home décor retailer would close 450 stores nationwide.
The bankruptcy petition clarifies that the company will
close all its Canadian stores as well as many U.S. ones.
USA Today posted a full list of stores closing. It includes
five in Washington state (Everett, Federal Way, Redmond, Seattle and Tacoma)
and one in Oregon (Roseburg).
