These Francesca’s Stores Are Closing for Good

Francesca’s Holdings Corp. is closing hundreds of stores for good.

On Friday, in a motion submitted to the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, the Houston-based chain revealed plans to shut down 97 outposts that are “currently underperforming relative to lease costs.”

The apparel and accessories retailer previously announced intentions to permanently shutter 137 units by the end of January. In a mid-November filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, it said that it expected to incur total impairment charges of about $29 million to $33 million as a result of the move, depending on factors such as the timing of the closures and the outcome of negotiations with third parties.

However, Francesca’s shared in its Chapter 11 filing late last week that it could close additional locations as part of the bankruptcy process. As of Thursday, 558 of its boutiques were open for business.
