Storied apparel brand Brooks Brothers files for bankruptcy as it seeks a buyer and closes stores

Brooks Brothers, founded in 1818, filed for bankruptcy on Wednesday. 

The retailer, which generated more than $991 million in sales last year, has more than 200 stores in North America and 500 worldwide. 

It has already decided to close roughly 51 stores, a decision it attributes to the pandemic. 

The coronavirus pandemic has now claimed one of the country’s oldest and most prestigious retailers.

Brooks Brothers — pioneer of the polo and uniform of the polished prepster — filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy court protection from creditors on Wednesday, as it continues to search for a buyer.

“During this strategic review, Covid-19 became immensely disruptive and took a toll on our business.”
