Update: Filene's Basement sold

| | Comments (0) | Retweet

Struggling discount retailer Filene's Basement has been sold to a liquidation and turnaround specialist. Officials noted "uncertainty" for its 25 doors but no announcement of store closings or liquidation has been made.

Filene's Basement has had difficulty all year; in January it closed 11 stores in a restructuring move.

For what it's worth, Timely Demise is a fan of Filene's Basement (so say many of the clothes in the TD closet) and is rooting for a turnaround and not a liquidation.
