Bad news: Athletic retailer City Sports will soon be no more.
Good news: Going-out-of-business sales are coming.
The Boston Globe reported yesterday that the troubled Boston-based company planned to close all 26 of its locations because of its inability to find a buyer that would keep the stores open.
The company, which filed for bankruptcy in October, closed its Georgetown store last week, reported the Washington Business Journal.
City Sports currently operates two locations in D.C. Employees at the downtown (1111 19th St. NW) and Gallery Place (715 7th St. NW) stores confirmed this morning that the locations would soon close, but did not say when.
Customers looking to stock up on athletic wear, take note: The company told the Boston Globe it plans to discount much of its merchandise starting tomorrow.
