Door Store files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection

Retailer operates nine locations in New York, New Jersey

New York — Door Store, with nine stores in New York and New Jersey, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

In its petition filed Wednesday, the company listed assets of $2.6 million and debts of $2.2 million.

Jodi Fitzgerald, president and coo of the family owned business established in New York in 1955, said in a court document that the company's financial difficulties were caused by "the general economic climate resulting in weakening sales, unprofitable lease locations, litigation with landlords and diminishing operating funds."
