Pier One is Closing About Half of its Stores

Pier 1 announced that it plans to close up to 450 of its stores. According to USA Today, that means nearly half of all Pier 1 stores will are closing. Bloomberg reported that Pier 1 could potentially end up filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Pier 1 provided information about this decision in a news release. Part of the news release said:

“In order to better align its business with the current operating environment, Pier 1 intends to reduce its store footprint by up to 450 locations. To reflect the revised footprint, the Company also plans to close certain distribution centers and reduce its corporate expenses. This includes a reduction in corporate headcount.”

Frugal shoppers might be able to take advantage of this situation. The first thing to do is to check the Pier 1 website to find out what special sales are being offered. They currently have a 60% sale on furniture. There is no information about how long this sale might last.

Furniture sales provide a frugal opportunity to replace a couch or chair that has worn out with a brand new one. Inexpensive furniture is very useful for young adults who are moving into an apartment for the first time.

In addition, Pier 1 is offering codes that can save shoppers 15%, 20%, or 25% on specific types of purchases from their website. The codes only last for a few days (but may be replaced by new ones).

If you have paper Pier 1 coupons, now is a good time to take them to your local Pier 1 store. Use them before the store closes! It is likely that many products will be offered at a discount, especially as stores get closer to their closing date. You can get a jump-start on holiday and birthday gifts by making your purchases now and storing them for later.

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.
