Josh Gottlieb reports getting e-mail from Zoots that the chain has shut down and filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy (that's the kind where it just goes away forever, rather than reorganizing). The message continues:
Please be patient as plans are being made to get your garments back to you.
In its Chapter 7 petition, filed yesterday in federal bankruptcy court in Boston, the Brockton-based chain said it has liabilities of between $1 million and $10 million, but assets of less than $50,000. Among its creditors: Comcast, BMW, Eversource, Home Depot and a variety of cities in the Boston area in which it has outstanding taxes.
