Brookstone recently announced that it will close all of its stores located in shopping malls. The announcement came shortly after it filed for debt relief through Chapter 11 bankruptcy. However, the news is not all bad -- California consumers can still find Brookstone products online and in its airport locations.
Brookstone is well-known for its collection of neat gadgets, useful travel items and massage chairs. Founded in 1965, it used to be one of the few places shoppers could find certain tech tools, but it struggled to adapt to a digital world. In 2014 it had 240 stores but filed for bankruptcy and was purchased for $136 million. It now has 101 mall stores, all of which are set to close.
