Woodland Hills, Calif. -- Great American Group said Friday it has been selected to handle the liquidation of Bakers Footwear Group, offering discounts for products in 56 of Bakers Footwear Groups’ remaining stores, as well as online at Bakersshoes.com.
Bakers locations in Alabama, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia are part of the sale event.
On Jan. 15, 2013 a bankruptcy judge for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in St. Louis signed a Chapter 7 order allowing Bakers Footwear Group to conduct going-out-of-business sales at its remaining stores. It once operated 236 Bakers and Wild Pair shoe stores in 37 states before filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last October due to declining sales. At that time, the company hired GA Keen Realty Advisors of New York, a division of Great American Group, to market leases for 150 Bakers and Wild Pair shoe store locations in 31 states.
