SAN ANTONIO – Closing procedures will begin immediately at eight Fallas stores and one Factory 2-U store after their parent company, National Stores Incorporated, and some of its affiliates, filed for bankruptcy earlier this year.
Significant markdowns of items began at the stores Friday as part of their closing protocol. According to a news release, as much as 30 percent is being deducted from the lowest-ticketed prices on items.
Inside one store on Thursday were racks marked at 10 percent off. The discounts will likely increase as inventory decreases.
"I'm kind of upset. I'm used to coming, shopping here. It was pretty good," said Mary Jane Garcia, a shopper. "I could always find some deals. I found a bigger deal (today)."
The Fallas stores sell apparel, including school uniforms, backpacks and other items. Factory 2-U sells home goods.
