Stein Mart, 4840 Forest Drive: September 2020   2 comments

Posted at 10:38 pm in closing






As noted by commenter Andrew and others, Stein Mart filed for Chapter 11 on 12 August 2020 and is expected to close most or all of its 281 stores across the country.

This story focuses on the Trenholm Plaza store, pictured above. A list of all of the announced store closings is here.

To the best of my recollection, I have never been inside this store, at least as Stein Mart. It is hard to say after so many years and upfits, but I believe this is the space once occupied by Tapp's Twig, a "smaller than a branch" storefront run by storied local department store Tapp's. If so, I would have been inside a number of times growing up.

Looking at the store closing list, I see the other local store is in Lexington, and I will try to get by before it is gone. In the meantime, the closing sale is already on, so we'll see if this location lasts into September.

  1. Very sorry to see the Trenholm location gone. It's been there for more than 20 years. I used to shop here regularly with my late mother and it was the last place in town save our church that is left where she and I used to spend time together. This has always been a great convenient place for people like me to stop in. I live in the neighborhood and whenever I needed something clothes or accessories wise for work or for a dress up occasion, I could drive right to Stein Mart and find it without the hassle of a mall or downtown traffic. Very sorry to see this chain got out of business.

  2. According to the Trenholm Plaza website, this spot will be home to a new HomeGoods.
