Pier 1 Imports is closing up shop, literally and figuratively.
Some of the other retailers that have filed for bankruptcy protection amid the coronavirus pandemic plan to survive by restructuring their businesses. But Pier 1 opted to liquidate and shutter all of its stores and websites after filing for bankruptcy protection in February.
In fact, July 25 is the last day of the the going-out-of-business sale at Pier1.com — where new price cuts mean discounts of up to 40%.
If you happen to live near one of the remaining Pier 1 stores, you may be able to shop its going-out-of-business sale a while longer. The retailer explains on its website:
“Our sale continues in stores as we sell off everything, including new summer styles arriving weekly!”
Just note that all sales are final at this point, whether you shop online or in a store.
Also, Pier1.com no longer is accepting Pier 1 gift cards, merchandise credit or Pier 1 Rewards Certificates as a form of payment.
Stores will accept these forms of payment only for 30 days after each store reopens following coronavirus-related shutdowns.
So, if you happen to have a Pier 1 gift card, credit or rewards certificate, be sure to call your nearest store immediately to find out whether you have any time left to redeem it.
If you miss out on Pier 1’s last sales, you still might be able to catch those of the other chains we mention in “4 Retailers Now Having Going-Out-of-Business Sales.”
