Per Russell Hubbard / World-Herald staff writer:

Former CEO Jeff Gordman, Texas-based Stage Stores might bid for Gordmans stores


Former Gordmans Chief Executive Jeff Gordman filed court papers Monday saying he might want to buy the company founded by his great-grandfather.

His possible bid joins another possible one from Texas chain Stage Stores, which submitted paperwork to the court earlier Monday saying it might be interested in the bankrupt Omaha firm.


Headquarters would probably still be lost but...........

4 Gordmans stores in Omaha metro area to close, according to court documents

Russell Hubbard / World-Herald staff writer wrote:The Omaha metro area appears set to lose four Gordmans stores via the chain’s bankruptcy and partial liquidation, while locations in Council Bluffs, Lincoln, Fremont and Grand Island appear to have been spared.

Documents filed over the weekend in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Omaha contain a list of 48 closing stores. On it are the department store’s locations in Bellevue and Papillion, at Lakeside Hills Plaza and west of 144th Street and West Maple Road in Omaha.

Interesting that they are closing both the Bellevue and Papillion stores. There won't be any in the southern part of the metro.

Omaha metro is losing all of the Gordman's. Guess that makes sense to someone

Race to the bottom. Between Amazon on the top and Dollar Tree on the bottom, is Gordman's really indespensible?

If it were me I'd can the stores that don't make money. I assume these don't. Simple as that.

And their two West O stores, Lakeside and Maple. That Maple is almost new.

Any guesses as to who may take over the new location on Maple?

If you check the locations of other Stage retail stores, you'll notice they're virtually all in small/medium sized markets. It's as if they closed the Omaha stores just to stay with that strategy.

Stage wanted the landlords to lower the rent and the landlords didn't want to.
