The bankruptcy filings come on the heels of Christmas Tree Shops being sold in 2020 and with a bit of surprise following a report in June of 2022 which stated that following a rebrand of the store name to "CTS," the retailer had seen a 35 percent growth in new sales.

In a statement, Christmas Tree Shops chairman Marc Salkovitz said that the current move to close some stores was “strictly a financial restructuring” and that “Our operations are sound. By increasing our financial flexibility, we will be able to focus on continuing to delight our loyal customers with a wide selection of unique goods at affordable prices.”
