Sixteen more Fred’s retail stores in Arkansas will close, the struggling Memphis-based retailer said Friday.
That brings to 51 the number of stores since April that Fred’s has said it will shutter in the state.
The latest store locations in Arkansas to be closed, according to Friday’s announcement, include De Queen, Dumas, Harrisburg, Holiday Island, Lake Village, Manila, Marianna, Marked Tree, Nashville, Piggott, Pine Bluff, Star City, Vilonia and West Helena.
The stores are among a total of 129 closings the company announced Friday. The remaining 80 stores in the chain will take part in a clearance event as an effort to refocus the product mix, simplify its store portfolio and pay down debt.
All pharmacies, including 69 within the 129 stores that will close, will remain open, the company said.
