PLYMOUTH, Mn. — Christopher & Banks is closing all brick-and-mortar locations, including its stores in Kentucky, due in part to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Jan. 13, 2021, the womenswear company filed for Chapter 11 reorganization as a result of the financial distress resulting from the pandemic and its ongoing impact.
The company authorized store closing sales to be conducted by Hilco Merchant Resources. The store closing process has begun at more than 400 stores nationally.
Store fixtures are also being sold as part of the closing sales, the spokesman said. Also, Christopher & Banks online sales will continue, but closing discounts will not apply to online purchases, the spokesman added.
Christopher & Banks has been around since 1956. It is joining the long list of retailers filing for bankruptcy and disappearing from America’s malls.
