SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – Low-price fashion retailer Forever 21 has released its list of store closures days after announcing it had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

The privately-held Los Angeles-based company says it will close nearly 180 stores around the U.S. as part of its bankruptcy proceedings.

Forty-one stores in California will close, with 7 of them here in the Bay Area.

The Bay Area Forever 21 stores closing are:

  • Hillsdale Shopping Center, San Mateo
  • The Shops at Tanforan, San Bruno
  • Oakridge Mall, San Jose
  • 2 Stockton Street, San Francisco
  • Northgate Mall, San Rafael
  • Sun Valley, Concord
  • Solano on Gateway Blvd, Fairfield

California is the state with the most store closures in the U.S.

In bankruptcy, Forever 21 said it would continue to honor gift cards, returns and exchanges.

The stores on the chopping block could potentially close by the end of this year.
