Jeans designer and retailer True Religion plans to close at least 27 stores after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
The company requested a federal bankruptcy judge’s permission to cancel 29 leases, including 27 stores that are still open, according to a court filing and USA TODAY calls to the locations.
The list could grow if the company’s plans to restructure its operations don’t proceed as planned.
A True Religion spokesperson did not respond to a request seeking more information. The company has about 140 stores.
The retailer and manufacturer filed for court protection from its creditors early Wednesday in a federal court in Delaware.
