The decision to liquidate the stores comes after the company filed for bankruptcy earlier this year - unless a buyer comes forward within the next week.

Christmas Tree Shops, known for its wide range of home goods, including bedding sets, dinnerware, and party decorations, has been a staple for many shoppers for many years. However, the company's financial struggles have led to this unfortunate outcome.

The anticipated closure will impact all remaining locations of Christmas Tree Shops across the country. Going-out-of-business sales are expected to begin as early as July 6, according to court documents filed in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

This decision comes after attempts to restructure the company's finances were unsuccessful. Despite filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy earlier this year, Christmas Tree Shops was unable to overcome its financial challenges and defaulted on a substantial loan.

The closure of the stores will leave many customers disappointed, as Christmas Tree Shops provided a unique shopping experience with its diverse selection of affordable products. As of now, there are no plans for the company to continue its operations or reopen in the future.
