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 achieveRobert Riesbeck, Pier 1’s chief executive and chief financial officer, via the New York Post
This decision follows months of working to identify a buyer who would continue to operate our business going forward.Robert Riesbeck, Pier 1’s chief executive and chief financial officer, via the New York Post
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.
