Children's clothing retailer Gymboree closing Southern Park Mall store

Posted: Updated:
BOARDMAN, Ohio -

The operator of a nationwide children's clothing retailer is closing more than one-fourth its 1,281 stores, including one in the Southern Park Mall as part of a bankruptcy plan.

Gymboree Corporation announced on Tuesday that it has filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and plans to close 350 stores, mostly Gymboree and Crazy 8 locations.

The Southern Park Mall has both a Gymboree and a Crazy 8, but the company only plans to shut down the Gymboree as part of a move corporate officials are calling 'right-sizing”.

Neither the Crazy 8 store in Boardman nor the Gymboree in the Eastwood Mall is included on the closing list.

Gymboree Corporation also operates Janie and Jack stores. None are located in the Valley.

The closing sales at affected stores are scheduled to begin on Tuesday, July 18.

For those interested in the sales, updated information will be available on the Company’s restructuring website at www.gymboreerestructuring.com.
