Fred’s to close 300 remaining locations.


(CNN Newsource) — After 72 years in business, Fred’s is closing down.

The discount retail chain filed for bankruptcy Monday.

There are only about 300 Fred’s locations still open. Liquidation sales will last for the next two months at remaining stores in Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Florida, and Texas.

The company will seek about 35 million in funding through bankruptcy court to help it shut down its operation.

Fred’s has been losing money since 2015 and already shut down more than 200 stores earlier this year.
