Pier 1 Imports has yet to confirm or release anything but Business Insider discovered that the company has already started to remove locations off its website.

Earlier this month, Pier 1 Imports announced that they were going to close 450 of their stores across the U.S. -- accounting for half of their locations.

The stores listed on Business Insider's website span across 43 states, including Michigan which seems like six stores total will be affected, two in West MI.

  • 3200 Fairlane Drive Allen Park MI
  • 3909 Alpine Ave Nw Comstock Park MI
  • 2308 North Park Dr. Holland MI
  • 647 N Market Place Blvd Lansing MI
  • 31800 Woodward Ave Royal Oak MI
  • 3155 Us Highway 41 West Marquette MI

They also discovered a post that the official Pier 1 Facebook account made in response to a question from someone:

If you have any questions about stores in your area, you can visit Pier1.com and enter your zip code at the top of the page. Closing locations have been removed from this list.

Again, they haven't made an official announcement but that pretty much speaks for itself. Plus, I went to the Facebook page of the Alpine location and sure enough, it says "permanently closed" where the hours would normally be listed.

The only Pier 1 store left in the Grand Rapids area is on Wilson Ave. in Wyoming.

The one in Muskegon and Kalamazoo will remain open... for now, at least.
