HHGregg, Inc. News Article:

Appliance and electronics store HH Gregg is preparing to file for bankruptcy, Bloomberg News reports.

The 61-year-old Indianapolis-based company could seek Chapter 11 protection as soon as next month. The move comes after company officials announced last week they was pursuing a variety of options in an effort to solve the chain’s financial crisis.

HHGregg, Inc. hasn’t confirmed the bankruptcy reports.

“We’re focused on continuing to execute our business strategy, as planned, and returning this company to profitability,” Chief Executive Officer Robert Riesbeck said.

The company has reported two years of losses and falling holiday sales. About 3,700 people are employed by the chain.

The move would be just the latest in a series of high-profile bankruptcies in the last year, including filings by The Limited and Wet Seal. Other traditional retailers, including Kmart, JC Penney and Sears, have recently announced multiple store closings.
