2019 is shaping up to be another tough year for some traditional retailers. After shutting down nearly 5,000 stores in 2018, there are already a ton of announcements regarding store closings in 2019, with many more expected in the coming months.

The latest news comes from Performance Bicycle.

Retail closings: The latest news

Performance Bicycle – 100+ stores closing

Performance Bicycle is expected to close its doors for good on March 2 now that its parent company, Philadelphia-based Advanced Sport Enterprises, has entered into Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Liquidation sales are currently underway at all 104 locations, according to the retailer’s website.

As the #1 specialty bicycle retailer in the U.S., Performance Bicycle has attracted legions of weekend warriors across the country looking for bikes and gear to hit the trails and roadways since 1982.

The store is expected to shut down 94 of its 500 or so stores across the United States. You can see a list of the locations on the chopping block here.

Petland Discounts – 70+ stores closing

This regional pet store chain is reportedly shuttering all locations throughout New York, New Jersey and Connecticut after the company’s founder died in January.

At last count, Petland Discounts had more than 70 stores across the tri-state area. Though the company’s website is down, you can see a list of locations here.

H&M – Closing 160 stores

International apparel retailer H&M has announced it will pull the plug on 160 stores in the United States in 2019.

“[The U.S. is] probably the market that is going through the biggest change at the moment with too many shopping centers around…too many physical stores,” CEO Karl-Johan Persson told Wall Street analysts when announcing the anticipated closures.

Yet at the same time, Persson also says H&M is planning to open 335 stores worldwide this year. However, only less than a third will be in the company’s main markets of the U.S. and Europe.

Tuesday Morning – Two dozen stores may be shuttered

Tuesday Morning announced that it plans to close between 20 and 25 this year.

“Over the next 12 months approximately 25% of our store fleet comes up for renewal,” CEO Steven Becker revealed during a recent earnings call. “We will aggressively renegotiate our rents and we’ll close stores opportunistically should those negotiations not result in a reasonable outcome for Tuesday Morning.”

In addition, the home décor chain plans to relocate 12 to 15 stores, expand one location and open up to a dozen new shops in 2019.

Pat Catan’s – All stores closing, one-third to be re-opened as Michaels

Michaels, the crafts store retailer, has announced it’s going to shutter all 36 locations of Pat Catan’s Arts & Craft Stores because the sub-chain has “struggled in the face of industry headwinds,” according to a press release.

Fortunately, there is a bright side to this closure announcement. Twelve of the Pat Catan’s stores — located throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and West Virginia — will be rebranded and reopened as Michaels stores later this year.

Gymboree – Filing for bankruptcy — again

Gymboree Group Inc. (GGI) has filed for bankruptcy protection for the second time in less than two years.

As part of that process, the children’s clothing retailer will shutter 800+ stores across two brands.

The closures will hit 540 Gymboree stores and outlets in the United States and Canada and 265 stores under the ‘Crazy 8’ brand across the U.S., according to Reuters.

Janie and Jack — a third brand in the GGI family — operates 139 stores. They will be sold off in asset purchase deal.

Shopko Stores – Filing for bankruptcy and closing more stores

Shopko had already been in the process of shuttering 60 stores in 2018, citing the “challenging retail environment.”

Now the general merchandise retailer says it’s going to pull the plug on another nearly 40 locations — operating under the Shopko, Hometown and Express names — across 20 states this year:

  • Colorado
  • Idaho
  • Illinois
  • Iowa
  • Kansas
  • Michigan

The Fort Myers, Fla.-based retailer says it’s going to close at least 250 stores over the next three years as part of a retail fleet optimization plan.

The closures will come across Chico’s three brands, which also include White House Black Market and Soma.

No word yet on exactly which stores will be shuttered. The closings are expected to trickle in throughout 2019 and then ramp up aggressively in 2020 and 2021.

At last count, Chico’s operated 1,431 stores in the U.S. and Canada.

Sears and Kmart – Files for bankruptcy; Additional stores closing

The store closing list is growing for Sears Holdings as it works to survive bankruptcy. On December 28, 2018 the struggling retailer said 80 more stores will be closing in March of 2019:

“As part of Sears Holdings’ processes to accelerate its strategic transformation and facilitate its financial restructuring, on December 27, 2018, the company informed associates at 80 stores that we will be closing these Sears and Kmart stores in late March 2019. Liquidation sales at these stores are expected to begin in two weeks. The accompanying Sears Auto Center at these Sears stores will also be closing. This is in addition to the previously announced closure of 40 unprofitable stores expected to be completed in February 2019.”

On November 8, the company announced that 40 Sears and Kmart stores will be closing in February 2019. The accompanying Sears Auto Center locations are also shutting down.

Sears Holdings filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in October and announced it would close 142 unprofitable stores by the end of 2018.

The company hopes to reorganize around a smaller platform of profitable stores. Sears and Kmart, along with their websites, will remain open during the Chapter 11 bankruptcy process.

Clark’s key takeaway

If you happen to receive a gift card for any of the retailers on this list, money expert Clark Howard wants you to spend it right away in case your local store is on the chopping block.

“If you have any gift cards for major retailers, I want you to go and shop. I want you to use them up,” Clark said.
