It's been a rough couple weeks for several retailers, online and off.
First, Thrillist's ecommerce venture, JackThreads, has been looking for a buyer, after disappointing revenue projections of $30 million for 2017 have the company facing an otherwise dire outcome.
Meanwhile, after two bankruptcies in two years, a third one looked like the end of the road for ecommerce clothing brand Wet Seal. But restructuring and advisory firm Gordon Brothers swooped in with a winning $3 million bid to keep the teen retail brand alive.
Things have been less lucky, though, for brick-and-mortar retailer HH Gregg, which is staring down defeat after an anonymous bidder backed out before the company's bankruptcy auction. Coroner's report blames the "Amazon effect."
