Among its wholesale customers are off-price giants Ross Stores and TJX Cos.
“The company entered bankruptcy with a baseline bid from the logistics and technology firm GigaCloud Technology to buy it for $85 million,” reports Retail Dive.

Wells Fargo is now scheduled to close 100 branches this year according to records from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC).
A spokesperson for the bank told DailyMail that although branches in many regions are closing, a smaller number are opening in a handful of successful markets.
“While the total number of branches continues to decline, new branches are being opened in high growth neighborhoods of existing markets, allowing us to offer more branch convenience,” they wrote.
“We may also open new branches where we combine two older existing branches into one better situated location.
Additionally, customers use our wide range of digital capabilities for many of their banking needs and, as a result, more transactions are happening outside the branch,” they added.
Wells Fargo executives said the move to shutter the branch locations reflects a surging use of online banking and a diminishing need for brick-and-mortar stores, per The-Sun.
“Customers use our wide range of digital capabilities for many of their banking needs and, as a result, more transactions are happening outside the branch,” a spokesperson for Wells Fargo told the Albuquerque Journal.
“As customer preferences and transaction patterns change, so will our branches and the experiences customers have in them.”
In August, Daily Mail reported that Wells Fargo had filed to close 37 branches nationwide as online competition swept new customers.
7 Wells Fargo branches are currently scheduled to shutter in California for the month of October.
But Wells Fargo isn’t the only bank closing several of its branches.
In fact, JPMorgan Chase has closed the most branches with many more scheduled to shutter by year’s end.
