Fred’s Closing 104 Underperforming Stores In Southeast

Fred's Chapter 11

Fred’s Inc. plans to close 104 underperforming stores in the Southeast as part of an ongoing effort to rationalize its store footprint.

Fred’s decision to close additional underperforming stores follows a continued evaluation of the Memphis, Tennessee-based company’s portfolio, including historical and recent store performance and the timing of lease expirations, among other factors.

Liquidation sales at the 104 stores designated for closure are underway while the other Fred’s stores will remain open.

“These additional store closures are a difficult but necessary step in the continued restructuring of Fred’s,” said Joseph Anto, Fred’s CEO.

Fred’s intends to close all 104 impacted stores by the end of June. Fred’s has continued its partnership with Malfitano Advisors LLC and SB360 Capital Partners to help manage the process and ensure a seamless experience for customers.

Fred’s also announced that it has entered into a forbearance agreement and amendment with its lenders under the company’s revolving credit facility, as described in more detail in a Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
