Tuesday Morning closing half its stores nationwide, including Centerville location

Home goods and décor discount giant Tuesday Morning recently announced it will close half of its stores after filing for bankruptcy, including one Dayton area location.

The retailer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Feb. 14.

Tuesday Morning operates 487 stores in 40 states. The chain will shut down seven locations in Ohio, including a store at 1079 South Main St. in Centerville that is scheduled to close March 31. That location first opened in the Centerville Place shopping center in April 2000.

The other six Ohio locations slated to close including stores in Canton, Columbus, Hilliard and Middleburg Heights and two locations in the Cincinnati area, the retailer said on its website.

The site announced sales are being offered at those locations and others that are closing.

Tuesday Morning plans to focus on optimizing its store footprint and its “core, heritage markets” during the restructuring process. It said it intends to close stores in low-traffic regions while allocating the proper resources to remaining stores in high-traffic regions, the company said in a release.

It believes that “targeted approach to winding down unprofitable and underperforming stores” will position it to emerge from bankruptcy with “a profitable, cash-generating store fleet that serves its most engaged and loyal customers.”

“Fortunately, we have the support of a committed capital provider in Invictus and a clear vision for transforming into a focused retailer that serves its core, heritage markets in a profitable manner,” Tuesday Morning CEO and Director Andrew Berger said in a release. “We look forward to taking steps that enable us to emerge as a stronger retailer that draws on a legacy of offering a unique off-price value proposition to our loyal customer base.

“We appreciate all the support of our employees, customers, creditors and other partners as we seek to sustain commercial operations with minimal disruptions.”
