Hilco Streambank is soliciting offers for the retail store banners, private label brands and associated domain names used by Gordmans, Peebles, Goody’s, and Palais Royal department stores. The brands were acquired over a 90-year period and owned by Stage Stores until 2020, at which point Stage Stores sold them to Bealls, Inc. as part of a bankruptcy sale.
“These brands have a high level of customer awareness with a 90-year history serving customers in the Central and Eastern United States,” commented Hilco Streambank Senior Vice President Richelle Kalnit. “The stores were beloved members of their communities with Gordmans having more than 285 stores in mid-sized Midwest markets and Peebles and Goody’s approaching 200 retail stores in small towns and rural markets. This is an opportunity to reconnect with customers seeking familiar brands that cater to them.”
