The company is closing Gymboree, Gymboree Outlet and insane 8 stores across the U.S. Sales at those closing stores will start Tuesday, July 18.
In Southern California, the company is shutting Gymboree stores in Los Angeles, Redondo Beach, Barstow, Carlsbad, El Cajon, El Centro, Santa Ana and Westminster; Crazy 8 stores in Corona and Westminster; and a Janie and Jack store in Thousand Oaks.
The move is a part of the children's apparel retailer's "go-forward" store footprint plan, and the closures will mainly include the company's namesake Gymboree stores as well its insane 8 branded stores, which typically carry lower-priced fare. Traditional retailers have been struggling to deal with strong competition from online companies and slowing mall traffic.
"The Gymboree management team is confident that this financial restructuring is the best path forward for all of the Company's stakeholders", the statement said.
