LACKAWANNA COUNTY, Pa. — Home decor store Pier 1 filed for bankruptcy this week, and if the company can't sell soon, all the stores could close.
"It's kind of sad, but I mean, I guess they'll just have an online presence now. I don't really follow that company now, but they had some cool stuff back in the day," said Scott Bertelson.
Pier 1 Imports is based in Texas, but there are stores all over North America.
"I loved going in there and walking around because they had such nice stuff," Cheryl Hatcher said.
Company officials say they've been struggling with online competition.
Customers say they're not at all surprised by what's happening.
"With me being a past sales employee, I've definitely noticed that Black Friday our sales have definitely decreased in sales retail area," Thomas Hatcher said. "I definitely think there is a lot more competition than in stores on location now."
