“Although decisions that impact our associates are never easy, reducing the number of our brick-and-mortar locations is a necessary business decision," said Robert Riesbeck, CEO and chief financial officer. "We thank our team of hard-working associates for their commitment to Pier 1 and to serving our customers.”

Stores remain open in Woodbridge, Fredericksburg, Gainesville, Fairfax and Leesburg.
