Stein Mart Stores Are Closing


Stein Mart is closing its entire brick-and-mortar fleet of stores.


The bankrupt discount chain announced today that it has authorized going-out-of-business sales by a joint venture made up of Gordon Brothers, Hilco Merchant Resources, Tiger Capital Group, B. Riley Financial’s Great American Group and SB360 Capital Partners. The liquidation process, it said, is underway at all 279 locations across 30 states in the country.


Since Stein Mart is an off-price retailer, shoppers were already able to find apparel, footwear and accessories from popular labels including Anne Klein, Keds, Lucky Brand, New Balance and Skechers for men, women and children, as well as home decor and gifts, at up to 60% off department store prices. Now, as part of the liquidation sales, the company is offering savings of up to 30% off the lowest ticketed prices storewide, including back-to-school necessities and seasonal products.


Stein Mart’s gift cards and loyalty rewards will be accepted for a limited time. It added that store fixtures, furniture and equipment will also be sold at discounted prices as it undergoes liquidation.


“New merchandise arriving in stores, as well as customers’ favorite familiar brands, are deeply discounted and will sell out quickly at these low prices,” a spokesperson for the joint venture said in a statement. “We are encouraging shoppers to take advantage of Stein Mart’s abundant assortment of merchandise at substantial price reductions before it’s too late.”


The 112-year-old retailer filed for Chapter 11 protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida, Jacksonville Division, on Wednesday. As part of proceedings, it said it was evaluating strategic alternatives, including the potential sale of its e-commerce business and related intellectual property.


“The combined effects of a challenging retail environment coupled with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic have caused significant financial distress on our business,” CEO and CFO Hunt Hawkins said in a statement accompanying the filing. “The company has determined that the best strategy to maximize value will be a liquidation of its assets pursuant to an organized going-out-of-business sale.”See the Full List for Going-Out-of-Business Sales.
