Calling all fans of faux fur and mirrored furniture: now is the time to stock up. Home decor brand Z Gallerie is closing 24 of its 76 stores. Seven of those are in Texas, and they include the only Fort Worth location.

The mecca of all things mirrored filed for bankruptcy in March and in May was sold to DirectBuy Home Improvement, a subsidiary of Indiana-based, e-commerce business CSC Generation.

Included in the underperforming stores set to close are three in Dallas-Fort Worth, three in Houston, and what was the only location in Austin.

You have until the end of July to shop in-person at The Shops at Clearfork in Fort Worth, Watters Creek in Allen, the Dallas Galleria, The Arboretum location in Austin, Houston's Highland Village, Market Street in The Woodlands, and Sugar Land Town Square.

Only five other Texas stores remain: in Southlake, on Knox Street in Dallas, at The Shops at Willow Bend in Plano, in Houston's CityCentre, and at The Shops at La Cantera in San Antonio.

The Clearfork store only opened in 2017. It was one of the first retailers to enter the luxury mixed-use development on the former Edwards Ranch. Z Gallerie opened its doors about the same time as two other high-end home furnishings retailers, Arhaus and Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, both of which are still in business.

Z Gallerie confirms that online orders are still being fulfilled as normal through its website.

This is the second bankruptcy filing for Z Gallerie, which was founded in Sherman Oaks, California, in 1979. It previously filed for Chapter 11 and closed 25 stores in April 2009.
