Following news of Barneys New York's financial struggles, the luxury department store is filing for bankruptcy and shuttering 15 out of 22 U.S. stores, including three in Los Angeles and three Barneys New York Warehouses in California, reports The Hollywood Reporter and the Associated Press. Its flagship in Beverly Hills, however, will remain open; Business Insider has posted a full list of the affected locations.
We've confirmed that the high-end retailer's locations at the Americana at Brand in Glendale, The Grove, and Santa Monica Place are all closing for good today. A staff member at The Grove told us that store employees only received the news "a few hours ago," while staff at Santa Monica mentioned that there won't be any closing sales as all merchandise will be transferred to the Bev Hills outpost.
All the stores will keep their posted business hours for today, so frequent shoppers at the three aforementioned locations have until 9 p.m. to bid their favorite sales associates goodbye.
