Christmas Tree Shops, whose headquarters is in Middleboro, Massachusetts, located in Plymouth County, announced the store closures this week after filing a petition for Chapter 11 of the US Bankruptcy Code on Friday, May 5.
The first Christmas Tree Shops store opened in 1970 in Yarmouth Port, Massachusetts, located in Barnstable County.
“After careful consideration, we determined that availing ourselves of the Chapter 11 process was the best way to address our burdensome liabilities,” said Christmas Tree Shops chairman Marc Salkovitz in a statement after the Chapter 11 bankruptcy. “This is strictly a financial restructuring. Our operations are sound.
"By increasing our financial flexibility, we will be able to focus on continuing to delight our loyal customers with a wide selection of unique goods at affordable prices. We continue to believe that given its storied history and strong customer loyalty, CTS has tremendous potential, and we remain committed to the long-term success of the business."
