Bad news for Goody's fansThere are actually a number of Goody's stores around the region. This will hurt a whole lot of people around here. It has been known that Goody's was in big trouble, but Chapter 7 is the final nail in the coffin.
The economic slowdown has claimed another retail victim.
Goody's Family Clothing plans to close its stores and liquidate all merchandise, according to this story. The Knoxville, Tenn.-based discount apparel retailer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in June, but it could not successfully restructure terms with creditors, according to the story.
Locally, Goody's has stores at Tanglewood Mall in Roanoke County, on West Main Street in Salem and in Christiansburg at Spradlin Farm Shopping Center. Founded in 1953, Goody's has 287 stores across the country.
Watch for going-out-of-business sales to begin soon at Goody's stores, which sell casual apparel and sportswear. [link]
