The Dubuque location of an imports retailer is one of hundreds of facilities that will close due to a massive restructuring effort.
Pier 1 Imports, located in Asbury Plaza, will close, according to employees and several signs posted at the store.
Attempts to get additional details, such as a timeline, from company spokespeople were not successful.
Pier 1 Imports officials last week announced plans to close 450 stores, which represent about half of the company’s 950 locations. Struggling sales were cited as a reason for the closure.
It’s the second time the Pier 1 Imports store in Dubuque has closed. The facility closed in 2009 but reopened about one year later.
