7 Arizona Locations On Pier 1 Imports Store Closing List
Several Phoenix area stores are on a closing list for the home furnishings retailer Pier 1 Imports.
The list is from A&G Realty Partners, the company helping Pier 1 with lease modifications and closures. It includes these locations in Phoenix:
- 12657 N. Tatum Blvd.
- 1743 E. Camelback Road.
- 4717 E. Ray Road.
- 2501 W. Happy Valley Road.
The list also includes a Chandler store at 2600 W. Chandler Blvd., a Peoria store at 10092 W. Happy Valley Road, and a Tucson store at 5919 E. Broadway Road.
Although Pier 1 did not respond to KJZZ’s request to provide a list, the company previously announced plans to close up to 450 stores and two distribution centers.
The retailer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in February and is looking for a buyer. Pier 1 requested a March 23 deadline to accept bids from potential buyers. According to a news release, Pier 1’s stores and online platforms are operating and the company expects normal business operations during the process.
In a prepared statement, Robert Riesbeck, Pier 1’s chief executive officer and chief financial officer said, “We appreciate the ongoing dedication of our associates, whose efforts in providing our loyal customers with the experience they expect from our brand are critical to our success and the future of Pier 1.”
