Three weeks ago, we reported that Fitch had put together a list of 8 retailers who were likely next in line to file for bankruptcy. The rating agency speculated that distressed legacy “bricks and mortar” outlets such as 99 Cents Only, rue 21, Gymboree and True Religion would follow what has already been a historic surge in retailers filing for Chapter 11 protection and/or shuttering stores. The Fitch list is below:

Sears Holdings Corp (roughly $2.5 billion);
99 Cents Only Stores LLC;
Charming Charlie LLC;
Gymboree Corp.;
Nine West Holdings Inc.;
NYDJ Apparel LLC;
rue21, Inc.; and
True Religion Apparel Inc.

Putting this list in context, over the weekend we presented a chart from Credit Suisse showing that on an annualized basis, some 8,640 – or more – stores would be closed in 2017, the highest number on record.
