Clothes reseller Gymboree files for bankruptcy again



Jan 17 (Reuters) – Children's clothing retailer Gymboree Group Inc filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, the second time in almost two years, and said on Wednesday it will close more than 800 Gymboree and Crazy 8 stores.

The San Francisco-based company said it will also sell its high-end line, Janie and Jack, as well as its intellectual property and online platform.

The company's Canadian arm, Gymboree Inc, also intends to seek bankruptcy protection, it said.

Gymboree is the second US retailer to file for bankruptcy Wednesday. Earlier, Shopko Stores, a general merchandise operator, filed a voluntary petition in Nebraska.

More than 20 US retailers, including Sears Holdings Corp. and Toys R US, were filed for bankruptcy since the beginning of 2017 and submitted to the attack of fierce e-commerce competition by companies such as Amazon Inc.
