Bob's Store Danbury

Several Bob’s Stores will be closing in Connecticut, and the clothing retailer’s Danbury location is among the casualties.

The Courant reports that Bob’s parent company, Eastern Outfitters, LLC, has proposed closing nine Connecticut stores as part of their bankruptcy proceedings. The other stores on the closing list include Enfield, Manchester, Fairfield, Simsbury, Hamden, Milford, Waterford, and the original Bob’s in Middletown. In all, 48 of Bob’s 86 locations are slated for closure. As many as 2600 jobs could be affected.

In addition, the company will be closing its Eastern Mountain Sports locations in Manchester and Fairfield. A hearing on the sale has been scheduled for April 19 according to NBC Connecticut.

This is disappointing to me as Bob’s BCC line of jeans are my favorite. They are durable, fit well and look good at about half the price of the famous name brands. I also bought a lot of team wear there. The day after the Red Sox finally won the world series in 2004, I was in there first thing, knowing they would already have the T-shirts out.

No plans have been announced yet to fill the Danbury space, which is a huge store on Federal Road that shares a building with Pilgrim Furniture City.
