All locations of Pier 1 Imports, including at least 13 in the Greater Houston area, will soon close permanently, according to a May 19 news release from the company.

The closure will come after the company sells off its remaining inventory and assets. Stores are temporarily closed due to the coronavirus, but the company is preparing to go out of business “as soon as reasonably possible” after failing to secure a buyer that would have allowed it to continue operating, Community Impact Newspaper reported.


These Houston-area Pier 1 locations will close at an undisclosed date. 615-771-7884. www.pier1.com
