That’s on top of the 30 stores it has already closed. No word on how many employees this could affect or if any locations in Connecticut will be impacted.

There are 16 store locations in Connecticut left.

News 8 has reached out to the company, and they do not have a list of closing stores available at this time.

However, Pier 1 has released this statement,

“We are committed to having a substantial store presence as a cornerstone of our go-forward strategy and will continue to optimize our footprint to align with the needs of the business. At this time, it’s premature to estimate a total number of store closings or identify specific stores as decisions have yet to be made.”
