Pier 1 announced it will be closing stores through this year as businesses are hit hard by measures to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pier 1 posted on its website Tuesday that it filed a motion seeking court approval to begin an "orderly wind-down of the company's retail operations as soon as reasonably possible after store locations are able to reopen following mandated closures during the COVID-19 pandemic."
The company expects to continue serving customers in its stores through early fall. Closing dates vary by location.
Pier 1 has a store in Joliet on Plainfield Road.
