VALDOSTA — Pier 1 Imports' Valdosta store is closing, one of hundreds of the home-furnishing chain's locations facing the chopping block.

A store employee said the Valdosta location, at 1819 Norman Drive, is in the process of shutting down. The store also turned up on a list of Pier 1 closings compiled by Business Insider.

Valdosta's Pier 1 no longer appears on the company's website.

The chain, based in Ft. Worth, Texas, announced in a statement Monday it is entering Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings.

Pier 1 is closing 450 stores, or about half the chain, including its entire presence in Canada, the statement said.
