A Massive Retailer in Florida Now Closes Several Stores

A massive retailer in Florida now closes several stores after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in September.

Soft Surroundings is currently undergoing liquidation sales and is closing more of its stores in Florida.

The company was founded in 1999 and opened its first store in 2005.

“The business grew to over 80 stores but experienced financial difficulties, closing twenty-five stories in 2021″, reports Ash Jurberg.

In September this year, the business sought protection from creditors in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Last week, a bankruptcy judge confirmed the women’s apparel retailer plan, including a $22.7 million sale of its e-commerce platform and a $400,000 settlement for its unsecured creditors.

According to reports, 65.4% of Soft Surrounding’s total sales come from online sales, and it will close all stores across the United States and focus on e-commerce.

This week, Gordon Brothers, the global asset experts, launched closing sales at all 43 Soft Surroundings retail store locations throughout the United States.

Below are the three stores in Florida that are still open and are running liquidation sales.

  • 23151 Fashion Dr., Suite 117, Estero, FL 33928
  • 140 University Town Center Dr., Suite 264, Sarasota, FL 34243
  • 998 Del Mar Drive, Suite 102, The Villages, FL 32159

Discounts between 20% and 50% on all items, including casual wear, shoes, and home products, specifically catering to women.

Everything is on sale, including new arrivals perfect for holiday parties and gift-giving.

“We encourage consumers to shop early to take advantage of the best selection of products and great savings throughout the stores while supplies last,” said Durien Sanchez, Managing Director, Retail at Gordon Brothers.

The discounts are only available in stores and not online.
