Pier 1 Imports Is Officially Closing All Their Stores After 58 Years

This is sad news, indeed. Pier 1 is closing their doors for good.

Y’all. More than half of my first apartment was done in Pier 1 decor. I love that place.


I mean, I never actually think of going in there — but when I do, I love it!


It seems they have had quite a problem with people forgetting to visit their establishment.


Pier 1 filed for bankruptcy back in February, and now they are asking a judge to allow them to liquidate the remainder of their stores.


They were founded in the 1960s, so this is truly the end of an era.

Where are we going to get our wicker furniture, random house decor, little tchotchkes, and cool little finds?

Yeah, I know, we can always head to Cost Plus World Market, but it won’t be exactly the same.

This is not the outcome we expected or hoped to achieve

This decision follows months of working to identify a buyer who would continue to operate our business going forward.

I am sad too, Mr. Riesbeck!

Pier 1 is planning to close after the coronavirus lockdown lets all stores open back up. They plan to liquidate at that time.


We do get to take advantage of their misfortune. They have posted a sale of 40% discount on all outdoor furniture and wall decor.

Their site says they are having a site-wide Memorial Day sale, so get over there now.

  1. This makes me so angry! I’ve been a die hard Pier One for 40+ years- back to when they carried music, clothes and jewelry. My entire house was furnished in Pier One. Everything was well made, gorgeous, and unique.

    Then they changed their buyers and everything went downhill from there. Quality was poor, they stopped carrying clothes and jewelry, and everything looked like it came from the Dollar Tree.
    This breaks my heart, it didn’t have to happen, had corporate greed not gotten in the way and they had listened to their loyal customers!
