Prescott's Pier 1 Imports Not on Current Closure List

20 February 2020  

Pier 1 is closing about half of their stores as they work to reorganize.

They are calling it their “Ongoing Business Transformation” – a genteel way of saying that they are closing 450 stores nationwide as part of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy process.

On their website, they offer the following information: 

"Pier 1 is pursuing a sale of the Company and is undertaking Chapter 11 proceedings to facilitate an orderly sale process. The Company fully expects to operate its business in the normal course during this process, and Pier 1’s continuing stores and online platform are open and operating. We remain focused on providing customers with unique, on-trend merchandise and an exceptional shopping experience.

According to Business Insider   while not all 450 stores being closed have been revealed, about 270 are identified. Seven of those are in Arizona, although the store in Prescott is not on the list at this time. USA Today  has a list of stores organized by state. 

According to a Tweet by Pier 1, the best way to tell if your store is closing, is to see if the store is still listed on their website, as they explained to this shopper from North Carolina.

In the meantime, the Pier 1 website  is also still operating. So, if this is one of your favorite stores, be sure to head on in and grab your best bargains now!
