Retail bankruptcy extends to Danbury’s Berkshire Shopping Center
Mattress Firm added stores in Danbury and Orange to its running list of bankruptcy closures, bringing to eight the number of locations it is exiting in Connecticut.
The retailer filed last week for bankruptcy protection from creditors, with parent company Steinhoff International indicating as many as 700 outlets could close as it strips costs to reduce debt. The company has stated its intent to remain in business.
A Mattress Firm location is now slated to close at the Berkshire Shopping Center at 67 Newtown Road in Danbury, as well as a pair of Boston Post Road stores in Orange.
