Last month I wrote an article about the discount retailer known as Tuesday Morning closing twenty-five of its stores in Florida.

All items were on sale, but now there is a new development with the company literally selling everything in the store- including fixtures and equipment.

Let's take a look at the ongoing story.

Tuesday Morning

Tuesday Morning was founded in Texas in 1974.

Several years ago, it had 687 stores across the United States, but it has faced many financial issues since then. Last month the company filed for bankruptcy; it was the second bankruptcy filing for the company in three years.

At the time of the filing, it also announced it would close over half of its stores, including 24 in Florida. In 2020, it closed 16 stores in Florida.

Once these stores are closed, there will be just 215 left in the United States, and Florida will have gone from 56 Tuesday Morning stores to sixteen in just three years.

In announcing the store closures, the company stated it would:

““Enable the company to reduce its outstanding liabilities, obtain the significant and necessary capital, and ultimately transform into a nimbler retailer that serves heritage markets in a profitable manner.”

The stores listed for closure above offered sales on all items, and savvy shoppers took advantage of this by snapping up bargains.

Now the website has been updated to state that even the store fixtures and equipment can be bought, advising customers to speak with the store manager.

It remains to be seen how much extra funds the business will gain from selling off fixtures and equipment, and customers buying merchandise on sale at Tuesday Morning stores closing due to bankruptcy should note that returns are not allowed.

I will continue to update readers with any new developments in this story.
