40 Popular Stores Partially or Fully Shutting Down Locations In 2019

Call us sentimental, but it’s always a little sad to see stores close for good. Even if you never shopped there or didn’t understand why anyone would shop there, it’s important to remember that some people did shop there, and more importantly, people worked there. Unfortunately, the times they are a changing, and 2019 is going to bring us the closure of countless brick-and-mortar stars in every corner of the country. 

Perhaps most surprising is the fact that major companies and household names are among the stores that will be closing up shop. Let’s face it, the way we shop and the way we buy things has changed over the last decade or so, and even some of the big boys haven’t been able to survive without having to make some changes. Just so we’re clear, not all of these stories are closing all of their locations, even if a significant amount of stores will be shutting down permanently. However, there are a few places on our list that will soon be up in retail heaven next to Circuit City, Media Play, and Blockbuster, among so many others.
