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!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
