NEW YORK — Adding another once gleaming nameplate to the department-store scrap heap, Goldblatt’s Department Stores, once a major Chicago retail force, has thrown in the towel.
Liquidation sales at the four remaining sites in Chicago — at 4700 South Ashland Avenue, 5630 West Belmont Avenue, 7538 South Stony Island Avenue and 125 West 87th Street — began on Monday, with the Great American Group conducting going-out-of-business sales. Three of the stores were operating under the Goldblatt Department Store nameplate, and the one at 125 West 87th Street was under the Goldblatt Bargain Store appellation.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
