The electronics and gadget retailer Brookstone is closing its store in SouthPark mall at the end of January.
A spokeswoman for Simon Property Group, the mall’s owner, said there is no new tenant to announce yet for the space, which is near Dillards.
Brookstone, a specialty retailer that’s known for gadgets such as massage chairs and personal drones, filed for bankruptcy protection in April 2014 as pressure mounted from e-commerce and as customers began spending less on non-essential items. The company was purchased by a Chinese investment firm that summer.
Since then, the company has continued to operate hundreds of stores nationwide, according to multiple news reports.
