The sales will offer consumers a unique opportunity to receive significant discounts on the retailer's inventory of fashion and home decorating textiles, sewing accessories, needlecraft supplies, and sewing machines. Select furniture, fixtures and equipment at stores will also be for sale.

On February 2, 2016, Hancock Fabrics, Inc. (OTCQB: HKFI) filed for Chapter 11 protection. On March 31, 2016, GA was recognized as the successful bidder by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware in the bankruptcy auction for the inventory of the fabric retailer.

"Our team has worked closely with Hancock Fabrics in a range of capacities over the years," commented Scott Carpenter, president of GA's Retail Solutions division. "Now, our task will be discounting all of the merchandise in the stores until it is completely liquidated. Loyal customers and the general public will be able to shop in the stores and receive significant savings on a wide variety of quality merchandise, just in time for their prom and bridal purchases. We expect the going-out-of-business sales to last several weeks before all of the merchandise is sold in the remaining locations."
