Christopher & Banks May Close All Colorado Stores

All of Colorado’s Christopher & Banks stores may close after the chain filed for bankruptcy Thursday.

The Minneapolis-based women’s apparel retailer says it expects to close most, if not all of its brick-and-mortar stores.

There are 449 Christopher & Banks stores in 44 states, including 14 in Colorado.

“Since the start of the COVID pandemic, we have taken aggressive steps to protect our business while continuing to serve our customers in a healthy and safe environment,” Keri Jones, the company’s president and CEO, said in a news release.

“Despite the tremendous advancements we have made in executing our strategic plan, due to the financial distress resulting from the pandemic and its ongoing impact, we elected to initiate this process and pursue a potential sale of the business in whole or in part to position the Company for the future. I want to extend my deepest gratitude to our dedicated associates, loyal customers and supportive partners for their commitment to Christopher & Banks throughout these challenging times.”
