    Default List of Stores Closing- Avoid Gift Cards, etc

    Here are a list of known store closings for the end of this year.

    How does this effect you?
    Well, if you purchase a gift card from any closing store and that store goes through bankruptcy, your money is lost and their is no law forcing them to honor the card, or return your money.

    As a matter of fact, the law Protects them from having to refund your money.



    • Pacific Sunwear (also owned by Talbots) - all stores closing/closed
    • GAP closing 85 stores
    • FootLocker closed 207 stores, expected to close more to close after January
    • Wickes Furniture closing down
    • Levitz filed chapter 11 (for the 3rd time in 10 years!)
    • Bombay filed chapter 11 and is closing all remaining stores
    • Zales closed 105 stores in 08'

    Tragedy, sadness, loneliness and despair taught me that life is really a beautiful thing; if it wasn't I wouldn't be able to recognize that anything was wrong - Lynn in Virginia

    Default False Post

    I got this same email last week. Do some research on Snopes.com. Most of the information about these closings are from last year or older.
