HOUSTON — Another Texas-based retailer has filed for bankruptcy.  

Tuesday Morning filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in response to the strain that the Covid-19 pandemic and related closure mandates have put on the company.

The Dallas-based off-price retailer of home goods plans to close about 230 of its 687 stores in a phased approach over the summer.

Currently, Tuesday Morning's website lists 24 Houston-area stores and dozens more throughout Texas. The company has locations across 39 states.

The initial wave of planned closures includes Houston-area locations in a 7,200-square-foot store in Clute, a 12,000-square-foot store in Pasadena and a 8,460-square-foot store in Seabrook, as well as six stores in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, one in Austin, one in San Antonio and one in Lufkin, Texas.

Other Texas-based retailers to file for bankruptcy since the pandemic began  include Neiman Marcus, JC Penney and Pier One.
