HOUSTON – A Texas home goods favorite is closing its doors after 49 years in business.
KPRC 2′s sister station KSAT reported that Tuesday Morning initially filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in May 2020. At that time, the chain said it planned on closing hundreds of stores to focus on high-performance locations. The company filed a second bankruptcy in Feb. 2023 due to “exceedingly burdensome debt,” CEO Andrew Berger said.
Tuesday Morning said it was going to continue to operate in “high-traffic regions” and close “unprofitable and underperforming stores.”
By doing that, the company said, Tuesday Morning could “emerge from bankruptcy with a profitable, cash-generating store fleet that serves its most engaged and loyal customers.”
However, the company did not successfully turn it around, and was put up for auction.
The chain now joins the other Texas-based home goods chain, Pier 1, with closing its doors.
Beginning on April 29, the store started its liquidation sale, offering savings of up to 30% off.
“Starting today, we have begun the process of closing all our stores. Our Going Out of Business Sale is in stores now, with savings up to 30% off. Thank you for 49 years of loyalty and support,” the company shared on social media.
Customers who have a gift card are urged to use it before it’s too late. Gift cards and merchandise return gift cards will be accepted until May 13, 2023.
Loyal customers shared their thoughts on the closure through Instagram comments.
