休斯敦,5月19日(新华社)——美国家具和装饰零售商Pier 1周二宣布,将请求破产法院“尽快合理”停止其零售业务。


这家总部位于得克萨斯州的公司在其网站上表示,它“打算在门店重新开业后启动关闭门店和清盘销售的行动”,以遵守当地政府和卫生官员制定的COVID-19准则。


该公司还打算通过法院监督程序出售其库存和剩余资产。


该公司的首席执行官罗伯特·里斯贝克说:“这一决定是经过数月的努力确定的买家,谁将继续经营我们的业务。”


他说:“不幸的是,严峻的零售环境因新冠肺炎的深刻影响而显著恶化,阻碍了我们争取到这样一个买家的能力,并要求我们放松警惕。”


Pier 1在2月份申请破产。自去年以来,该公司已将门店数量削减了一半。

HOUSTON, May 19 (Xinhua) -- U.S. furnishing and decor retailer Pier 1 announced Tuesday that it is asking the bankruptcy court to ceasing its retail operations "as soon as reasonably possible."

The Texas-based company said in its website that it "intends to initiate store closing efforts and liquidation sales once store locations can reopen," in compliance with COVID-19 guidelines from the local government and health officials.

The company also intends to sell its inventory and remaining assets through the court-supervised process.

"This decision follows months of working to identify a buyer who would continue to operate our business going forward," said the company's CEO Robert Riesbeck.

"Unfortunately, the challenging retail environment has been significantly compounded by the profound impact of COVID-19, hindering our ability to secure such a buyer and requiring us to wind down," he said.

Pier 1 filed for bankruptcy in February. It has already cut its store count in half since last year.
