New York-based Aeropostale will be hosting a significant number of Going Out of Business Sales in New York in 2016 as part of the teen retail chain's Chapter 11 reorganization efforts.  The biggest loss to the New York retail landscape will be the closing of the 19,000 square foot Aeropostale flagship store in Times Square.  

Another retail company with headquarters in New York is closing all of its New York brick-and-mortar retail store locations in 2016, along with 11 other stores in 7 states.

 Scoop NYC is going out of business completely in 2016, after 20 years selling curated luxury designer clothing in a high-end shopping experience which included wardrobe consultants before personal shoppers became part of the mainstream retail experience.

The only Teavana Tea Stores owned and operated by Starbucks join Ann Taylor, Gap, Barnes & Noble, JCPenney and Macy's on the New York Retail Going Out of Business Sales list for 2016.  If some of the largest U.S. retail chains can't make it there, will they continue to "make it" anywhere?

If New York state was its own country, its economy would be ranked among the 20 largest economies in the world.  As an international shopping destination and the home to some of the most iconic retail flagships in the world, it's no surprise that the retail industry is one of the drivers of the New York economy.  

Retail sales generate more than $250 million in sales and one-fifth of the state's tax base annually, according to the Retail Council of New York state.

More than  900,000 retail employees work in more than 77,000 retail businesses, collecting more than $29 billion in retail wages in New York.   More than 80 major chains have their corporate offices and retail headquarters based in New York.

What follows is a list of retail store closings happening in 2016 in New York state.

 The retail store locations listed are either NY stores that have already closed, NY stores with going out of business sales in progress, or NY stores that have been slated to close before the end of the 2016 calendar year.  BOOKMARK THIS PAGE to return for updates all throughout the 2016 calendar year.
