Hancock Fabrics closing all locations

(RNN) – Hancock Fabrics is closing all of its remaining 185 stores after filing for bankruptcy.

The Great American Group won a bankruptcy auction for assets and inventory of the fabric and craft retailer.

The company's website is already advertising a going-out-of-business sale in stores and online. Sales will last for the next few weeks while inventory remains.

Hancock filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy for the second time in February.

There are two Hancock Fabrics locations in the Columbia area, as well as two in the Charleston area, and one store each in Florence, Greenwood, Rock Hill, Greenville, and Anderson.

The company previously filed for bankruptcy in 2007, but re-emerged a year later.

Hancock Fabrics first opened in 1957.
