Linens N' Things Closing Up Shop

Recommended Posts

I cannot really say I am surprised given the boom of Bed Bath and Beyond, Home Sense etc. but I received an email today from LNT saying that they announced today that they were going into liquidation.

 

I spoke to head office who confirmed that all stores in Canada and the US are closing. If you are registered there (like I am)! she suggested that you either move your registry to another "retailer" whatever that means or buy the stuff you want now.

 

I gather that they aren't going to be open for too much longer - the store near me said they thought they would be open for a week to liquidate assets!

Hey everyone! We have our registry at Liens n Things and they just sent me an email saying the following:

 

"Today, October 16, 2008, Linens â€n Things announced that the company is entering into liquidation. This announcement pertains to both the US and Canadian stores, as well as LNT.com and will commence liquidation on Friday, October 17, 2008.

In light of this announcement, we wanted to advise you that you should either purchase any remaining items on your registry or relocate your registry to another retailer.

 

Our stores will remain open for a short period of time to liquidate inventory. Both the 10% off announcement cards and 20% off completion discount will no longer be valid effective Friday, October 17, 2008.

 

In this exciting time in your life we understand that your registry and wedding are very important to you, and we regret that our company issues have led to this situation."

 

 

 

 

I am guessing that after today they won't except gift cards either...since that is normal protocol when a store is liquidated. My FI and I have a remaining gift card from my Bridal Shower and we rushed to our nearest Linens n Things to go and buy what we could before the "liquidation sale" started. But unfortunately by the time we got there the signs were already up! So I went online and was able to buy some items using our gift card.

 

I just wanted to give everyone else out there a heads up....You have 2 hours before you can't use your gift cards anymore.

Maybe it's different in Canada but I just called them and they said I can continue to use my gift cards in store - maybe that's b/c they have closed down the online Canada store.

 

Kinda bugz me - no notice what so ever!

Linen n things has been bankrupt for a while, they were in hopes that another company may buy them out, but it doesn't looked like that happened. Bummer!!!

I received the email. We already had our shower, and had received a couple duplicates that we went and exchanged for some other items off our registry and used our gift cards right away. We had to go to another store since the one closest to us had already been selling stuff at a discount to get rid of items before the store closed. We wanted to close out our registry when we went to return the shower gifts, but they said we had to wait until after our wedding date to receive the 20% discount. I am so mad now because we don't get to use it. The store by us that was closing only offered a 10% discount, but not sure if they are going to increase the discount due to all the stores closing now. I wanted to get over there to get the rest of my towels and my kitchenaid attachments before they are all gone!

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
