Defunct Retailers in the US

A list of stores that have gone out of business. This list is limited to large retailers and store chains that have gone out of business, declared bankruptcy, merged with other brands or liquidated since in the 1960s. Almost all of the listed businesses were started between the 1920s and 1950s. The companies listed come from every major industry and retail sales vertical, including automotive supply stores, clothing stores and fashion retailers, drug stores, hardware stores, electronics stores, music and movie stores and supermarkets.

Ever wonder what stores no longer exist? This list will answer that question by showing ever big retailer that has gone under.

The reasons behind these companies and brands going out of business are varied. Many of them were eventually beaten out by online stores that provided the same products with added convenience, and without the need to pay local sales tax and other complications faced by physical brick-and-mortar stores. But others simply succumbed to realities of the marketplace, or were purchased outright by competitors.
