A bankruptcy filing may reportedly soon come from Christmas Tree Shops.
The earliest that lawyers for the home-goods retailer, which now goes by CTS, might do so is before the start of next week, according to the Wall Street Journal. The outlet cited anonymous sources on Thursday.
Bed Bath & Beyond sold Christmas Tree Shops, which offers seasonal decorations, furniture and other items, to Handil Holdings in November 2020. The transaction went through roughly a month after it was announced.

The privately held CTS is led by Pam and Marc Salkovitz via Handil Holdings, per the retailer’s website. FOX Business reached out for comment.
The home-goods retailer’s footprint spans 80 stores located in 20 states. It opened a new location in Sarasota, Florida, in early December, according to a press release from the time.
At the same time Bed Bath & Beyond revealed it would be offloading Christmas Tree Shops, it also unveiled plans to sell its Linen Holdings and a distribution center in New Jersey. Those went to separate buyers.
