Here’s what we know so far about the possible Forever 21 bankruptcy.

  • Insider sources claim that a bankruptcy filing is likely on the way.
  • This would have the company potentially restructuring its business.
  • That means it would probably be closing down a hefty amount of stores as it looks to reduce costs.
  • There are currently more than 800 Forever 21 stores across the world.
  • While the Forever 21 bankruptcy is possible, there’s still a chance that the apparel retailer can avoid such an outcome.
  • It has been looking for additional financing for some time now in order to avoid filing for bankruptcy protection.
  • While things are looking grim for the company, there’s still a chance someone could come in at the last minute to provide it with this funding.
  • This would bring an end to the company’s 35-year history of serving customers.
  • It’s also possible that a Forever 21 bankruptcy would spell bad news for mall owners.
  • The retail chain is one of the largest renters of mall spaces in the U.S.
  • Without it around, mall owners would lose out on a large amount of rent payments.
  • It would also be hard for these malls to find other retailers to fill the void as the shopping centers deal with declining foot traffic.
