Gymboree began the process of filing bankcruptcy back in June and the children’s clothing store is already making promises about closures.

Hundreds of stores across the United States will close with seven Georgia spots on the list. Beginning July 18, 350 of the over 1,200 retail locations wil shutter their doors.

“Importantly, we will continue to operate a majority of our stores and will continue to deliver quality merchandise and superior service to our customers at our Gymboree, Janie and Jack and Crazy 8 brands,” Daniel Griesemer, president and CEO of Gymboree, said in a statement. “This was a difficult decision to make, but we are confident that it is in the best long-term interest of our Company, our customers and our broader employee base.”

The list includes:

  • Town Center at Cobb, 400 Ernest W. Barrett Pkwy., Kennesaw
  • Gwinnett Place, 2100 Pleasant Hill Road, Suite #226, Duluth
  • Georgia Square Mall, 3700 Atlanta Highway, Athens
  • Cumberland Mall, 1331 Cumberland Mall, Atlanta
  • Peachtree Mall, 3507 Manchester Expressway, Columbus,
  • The Avenue Peachtree City, 253 City Circle, Peachtree City
  • Oglethorpe Mall, 7804 Abercorn St., Savannah

Gymboree also operates “Crazy 8,” which is another children’s clothing store. The North Point Mall location in Alpharetta will also close.
