Popular home goods retailer, iHeart, has announced it will be closing all 360 of its locations around the United States. This includes all of their Tennessee locations.
The company cited changing consumer habits and preferences as a major factor in its decision to close down stores across the country. They also noted that they are focusing on providing customers with more online options for shopping instead of physical stores.
iHeart had been operating in Tennessee since 2003 and was known for offering quality products at competitive prices with great customer service. The closure is expected to affect hundreds of employees who worked at these retail outlets throughout the state, many who have been loyal to iHeart for years now find themselves without jobs due to this sudden announcement from the company’s leadership team.
Fortunately, those affected by this closure can take advantage of resources, such as job search engines or career counseling services offered through local government agencies or non-profit organizations that help individuals transition into new roles after layoffs like these occur within an industry sector like retailing.
In addition, customers can still purchase items from iHeart’s website where they offer free shipping on orders over 50 dollars along with other discounts and promotions when available. Despite having no physical store presence in Tennessee anymore, shoppers can still get access to some great deals while supporting a business that has served them well over many years.
