The Men's Wearhouse in Fresno was not on an initial list of store closings.
Written by The Business Journal Staff
Fashion chain Men’s Wearhouse announced Monday it was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection as a way to “reorganize and strengthen” the business.
The Houston-based parent company of Men’s Warehouse, Tailored Brands, also operates Jos. A Bank. The retailer announced in a press release that the impact of fewer in-person meetings, postponed wedding celebrations and less going out has impacted the business.
Of the 1,274 stores under the Tailored Brands umbrella, 500 stores will close nationwide, according to “USA Today.” The Fresno and Visalia locations were not included in a list of the first 100 store closures, nor was a JoS. A. Bank in River Park. Company officials stated in the press release they had a desire to maintain a presence in every major metropolitan area.
Suit rentals and reservations would not be impacted, the press release stated, nor would custom clothing orders.
