Pier 1 Imports announces closure of Hawaii locations
KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii - Retailer Pier 1 Imports Inc. has announced it is closing its seven stores across Hawaii. West Hawaii Today reported Wednesday that the company says the stores will close in early 2020. A Pier 1 spokesperson says the timing of the closures will vary for each location. The Fort Worth, Texas-based home goods retailer opened its first store on Hawaii island in Kailua in June 2012, followed by a Hilo store in March 2014.
