Gymboree closing 350 stores, including several in North Texas

Gymboree closing 350 stores, including several in North Texas

Children's clothing chain Gymboree has filed for bankruptcy protection in the United States, aiming to slash its debts and close hundreds of stores amid crushing pressure on retailers.

After the closings, the company will have three remaining Gymborees: St. Louis Galleria in Richmond Heights, West County Center in Des Peres and an outlet store at St. Louis Premium Outlets in Chesterfield.

The closing sales at affected stores are scheduled to begin Tuesday.

A full list of the stores that are closing is posted on Gymboree's restructuring website.

Gymboree at the Mall of NH slated to close as part of a company-wide bankruptcy filing.

The company is also closing some Jack and Janie stores, but none in Central Florida.




Among other shortcomings, Gymboree failed to innovate quickly, having only recently introduced store email, analytics and tablet computers to help employees do their jobs.

Neither the insane 8 store in Boardman nor the Gymboree in the Eastwood Mall is included on the closing list.

The Fargo location is one of 350-outlets the company is shutting down.

As people shop online more, traditional retailers such as Gymboree and shopping malls in general have been hit hard.

The Gymboree management team is confident that this financial restructuring is the best path forward for all of the Company's stakeholders.
