Gordmans, 1818 East State Road 44, is scheduled to open today to start closing out the store that opened 14 months ago.

Nearly 14 months to the day of its grand opening in Shelbyville, Gordmans will open its doors once again and prepare to close for good.

In a letter from Stage Stores president and CEO Michael Glazer posted on the company’s website, www.gordmans.com, the effect caused by closing store doors due to the novel coronavirus pandemic has forced the company to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, “as we simultaneously run a sale process for our business and any of our assets and initiate an orderly wind-down of our operations.”
