Tuesday Morning Corp. confirmed in a March 27 news release that the company has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in an effort to begin financial and operational reorganization due to the “immense strain” that COVID-19 and related store closures have had on the company.

As a result, the company plans to close the Green Hills store at 4108 Hillsboro Pike, Nashville, according to court documents. Tuesday Morning will close two other Tennessee locations in Chattanooga and Knoxville.

"The prolonged and unexpected closures of our stores in response to COVID-19 has had severe consequences on our business," CEO Steve Becker said in the release. "Prior to the pandemic, we were gaining momentum in our merchant organization, growing our vendor base and improving brands, assortment and value for our customers, while investing in our technology and corporate leadership team. However, the complete halt of store operations for two months put the Company in a financial position that can be effectively addressed only through a reorganization in Chapter 11."

The company plans to begin closing one third of its 687 stores over the summer in an effort to focus on its highest-performing locations, the release said.

A closing date for the Green Hills location has not yet been announced. 615-383-7213. www.tuesdaymorning.com
