Fred’s Discount Chain To Close All Stores

FRED'S FILES FOR BANKRUPTCY AND PLANS TO SHUT DOWN ALL OF ITS STORES

Memphis, TN (WREG) – After 72 years in business, Fred’s is closing down.

The discount retail chain filed for bankruptcy Monday.

There are only about 300 Fred’s locations still open.

Liquidation sales will last for the next two months at remaining stores in Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Florida, and Texas.

The company will seek about $35 million in funding through bankruptcy court to help it shutdown operation.

Fred’s has been losing money since 2015 and already shut down more than 200 stores earlier this year.
