Last month I wrote an article about the discount retailer known as Tuesday Morning closing seventeen of its stores in North Carolina.

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 seventeen in North Carolina. It also closed a store in North Carolina in 2020.

Once these stores are closed, there will be just 215 left in the United States and only seven remaining in North Carolina. It is a sharp decline- North Carolina will have gone from twenty-five Tuesday Morning stores to seven 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.

Everything is on sale

When the business says everything is for sale, they really mean it. The website has now been updated to state that even the store fixtures and equipment can be bought.

It remains to be seen how much extra funds the business will gain from selling off fixtures and equipment and if this will save the remaining seven stores in North Carolina.

Customers buying merchandise on sale at Tuesday Morning stores closing due to bankruptcy should be aware that returns are not allowed.

There have been reports that other retailers such as TJ Maxx and Ross Dress for Less are eyeing off stores abandoned by Tuesday Morning, so perhaps they will be interested in purchasing the discounted equipment.

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