A Fashion Brand Now Declares An Unexpected Bankruptcy

A fashion brand now declares an unexpected bankruptcy filing after running out of money, in an efforts to restructure its finances.

Renewcell, which makes Circulose, solved a problem and prompted an industry that had been famous for waste to become more sustainable.

Fast fashion has often been accused of being wasteful and bad for the planet because by design the clothes people buy aren’t supposed to last long.

The company tried to fix that by, according to its own terms, “making fashion circular.”

Renewcell explained Circulose and its operations on its website.

Unfortunately, its eco-friendly plan within the fashion industry did not pan out entirely the way it was intended to.

The company has run out of money and filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy, reports TheStreet.

Renewcell began a strategic review in November in order to sort out the company’s finances.

“As part of the strategic review, Renewcell has had well-advanced negotiations with its two largest shareholders, H&M and Girindus, its existing lenders BNP Paribas, European Investment Bank, Finnvera (as partial guarantor), Nordea, AB Svensk Exportkredit and potential new investors as well as other stakeholders regarding long-term financing solutions,” the company said in a news release.

“Unfortunately, it is now clear that these discussions have not resulted in a solution which would provide Renewcell with the necessary liquidity and capital to ensure its operations going forward.”

This led to the company’s board filing for bankruptcy at the Stockholm District Court.

While a Swedish bankruptcy does not mirror the American process, the filing is similar to a Chapter 7 plan.

The company’s future is very much in doubt and a liquidation appears likely, reports the outlet.

A bankrupt department store now has a massive liquidation sale up to 70% as it prepares to close its final location in New Jersey.

Sears is closing its final location in New Jersey on Sunday, March 3, reports The-Sun.

The iconic department store chain will soon have just 11 mainland US stores left, the outlet reports.

Situated in Jersey City’s Newport Mall, the closing location is the only Sears store serving New York City residents.

The closest remaining Sears for NYC shoppers will be 227 miles away in Braintree, Massachusetts.

Sears has served as the anchor store for Newport Mall since it opened in 1987.

Rumors have it that Primark, the Irish discount clothing and home store, could take its spot, as per CNN.

Sears announced the closure of its Newport mall store via Facebook.

In a post, it told shoppers that “everything” would be between 25% and 75% off.

Sears and K-Mart are both owned by Transformco.

They have been on a rapid decline since their peak in 2005, at which point they had a combined 3,500 stores.

Under the ownership of billionaire Eddie Lampert, sales have dramatically slowed as Sears has failed to keep up with competitors in the online space.

By 2018, Transformco filed for bankruptcy.

Although the retailer survived bankruptcy with 223 Sears stores in tact, all but 11 in the continental US and one in Puerto Rico have since closed.

Sears is not the only mall staple struggling to survive.

JCPenney is also holding liquidation sales at its anchor store at the Crystal Mall in Waterford, Connecticut.

Since filing for bankruptcy in 2021, it has closed a total of 175 locations.

However, the retailer has vowed to spend $1 billion remodeling its existing stores by the end of 2025 to stop shoppers from turning away.
