Pier 1 is the latest chain to shut down a number of retail locations in the state following the November 2019 news that A.C. Moore craft stores all are closing, including 18 in New Jersey, though some may reopen as Michael's stores.
Other retailers that closed up shop to some extent in 2019 include Bed Bath & Beyond, Gymboree, JC Penney, Payless Shoes, Sears, Kmart, Gap and Victoria's Secret.
