Christopher & Banks is a women’s apparel retailer. It has filed for bankruptcy and has already begun taking steps to close all of its 450 stores. The company is based in Plymouth, Minnesota.

Christopher & Banks decision was due to debt issues and pandemic disruptions. It relied heavily on foot traffic to bring people to its stores. The foot-traffic has decreased in recently due to competition from big-box retailers, rising online sales, and changing customer preferences.

In a news release, Christopher & Banks stated that they expect to close a significant portion, if not all of its brick-and-mortar stores. It is also seeking potential buyers for the sale of its eCommerce platform and related assets.

This may be sad news for fans of Christopher & Banks. There is a bright side, however. If the company sells its eCommerce platform, it could mean that the company that buys it might sell continue to sell some Christopher & Banks products.

When a store announces that it is filing for bankruptcy, it is an opportunity for consumers to save money on the sales that are offered. Right now, Christopher & Banks has a limited-time “take an extra 10% off entire site” sale on its website. There is also a 40% sale on new arrivals, and an online-only semi-annual clearance sale starting at $10.

Those who have a Christopher & Banks gift card should make an effort to use it soon. Stores that file for bankruptcy may decided to abruptly stop accepting their gift cards. This is especially true after they find another company that wants to purchase their assets.

Is there a Christopher & Banks store near you? Now might be a good time to stock up on clothing that you can wear while doing online meetings. Call the store first to make sure they are still open.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
