While local restaurants have been hit hard by the novel coronavirus, retailers big and small, are also permanently closing up shop citing financial hardship brought on by the COVID-19 outbreak.

Retailers with a national presence are able to scrape by, closing only “underperforming” stores as part of Chapter 11 bankruptcy filings, while small operations are having to shut down completely.

As with our list of permanently-shuttered restaurants, this one will be updated regularly with the most recently-surfaced retail closures at the top. Please email us here if you know of a closure.
