The Peebles department store in Madisonville Kentucky’s Parkway Plaza Mall is set to close its doors.
A sign displayed at the entrance of Peebles indicates that the store’s final day of business will be Saturday, Feb. 22.
Following the Feb. 22 closure of Peebles, on March 3, the location that Peebles is currently in will be replaced by a Gordmans department store location.
Upon the opening of their new location, Gordmans plans to donate $1,000 to Madisonville North Hopkins High School.
Madisonville North Hopkins High School isn’t the only school that will be receiving a donation from Gordmans upon the March 3 grand opening date.
Including the new Parkway Plaza Mall location, Gordmans is opening 25 new stores in Kentucky in total on March 3, with a $1,000 donation going to 25 different Kentucky schools, WYMT reported.
Both Gordmans and Peebles are part of the Stage community of stores.
“Our 2020 vision? Converting all of our stores to Gordmans! To help you get to know your new favorite store, we wanted to show you what we’re all about. Fun finds in fashion, home, pets & way more at everyday low prices,” Stage said in a Facebook post.
It’s unclear exactly how many of their stores Stage Stores plans on converting into Gordmans, but multiple reports indicate the number to be at least 500.
