Hastings to close all stores, including 4 in Spokane / Coeur d' Alene

I think we all hoped it wouldn't come to this when Hastings announced it's bankruptcy filing a couple of months back. But, sadly it is now official that all Hastings Entertainment stores will soon shutter. The Amarillo,TX based chain of mid box entrainment stores went up for auction this week in a Delaware bankruptcy court and was acquired under a joint agreement by Hilco Merchant Resources,LLC & Gordon Brothers Retail Partners who will oversee the going out business sales, turning over sales back to the company's creditors.

Hastings, which sells movies, video games, books and much more in it's stores has operated 2 stores in Spokane, 1 in Spokane Valley and another in Coeur d' Alene. Under the sale agreement all stores must be closed by Oct. 31st 2016, although some may close prior to that date as long the company provides the store's employees 7 days notice.

Our local Hastings store locations include-

15312 E. Sprague Ave .  Spokane Valley,WA

1704 W. Wellesley Ave.   Spokane,WA

2512 E. 29th Ave.   Spokane,WA

101 E. Best Ave. Coeur d' Alene,ID

Hastings has been in business since 1968 and operated 126 total locations through-out the Western and Mid-western United States. The company also employed just shy of 3900 employees chain-wide , all of which will be laid off. As this announcement is still new there has yet to be any news as to who might re-fill the store sites left behind by the company.

For more information on Hastings, their website appears to still be functional and can be found at-
