Lucky Brand’s CEO Matthew Kaness noted, “the Covid-19 pandemic has severely impacted sales across all channels. While we are optimistic about the reopening of stores and our customers’ return, the business has yet to recover fully.”
The company plans to continue operations through its Chapter 11 process while keeping an eye out for more bidders.
