Going Out of Business Sales Begin Today, May 7th, at Locations Throughout the U.S.

Hilco Merchant Resources and Gordon Brothers announced today that they will begin going-out-of-business sales at Simply Fashion and Dots retail locations nationwide beginning today, May 7th.  Hilco Merchant Resources and joint venture partner, Gordon Brothers, will oversee the going-out-of-business sales on behalf of Simply Fashion and Dots.  Simply Fashion, a Birmingham-based women’s fashion discount retailer, filed for Chapter 11 protection on April 20, 2015 and on May 6, 2015, and the joint venture team were awarded the store closing process by the bankruptcy court.  Simply Fashion currently operates approximately 243 retail locations under the Simply Fashion and Dots banners.  Store closing sales will offer discounts of up to 30% on all merchandise.  Store furniture, fixtures, and equipment will also be for sale.

Gift cards will be honored throughout the sale.
