WALNUT CREEK >> Neiman Marcus, a famed luxury retailer that toppled into bankruptcy in May during the height of coronaviru­s-linked economic woes, has closed its Walnut Creek store, the company said.

The store, located in downtown Walnut Creek’s Broadway Plaza retail and restaurant complex, has shut its doors permanentl­y, according to the merchant’s website and a representa­tive for Neiman Marcus.

Neiman Marcus had disclosed in July that it was planning to close the Walnut Creek store sometime after Christmas, most likely early in 2021.

Texas-based Neiman Marcus filed for bankruptcy in May and emerged from bankruptcy in September.

The retailer said in September that it was able to eliminate more than $4 billion in debt as a result

of its financial reorganiza­tion. The Walnut Creek store, perched

on a prominent corner in downtown Walnut Creek, opened in March 2012, occupying about 86,000 square feet as one of the main anchors for Broadway Plaza.

The Neiman Marcus store in Walnut Creek featured personal shopping areas for men and women, cosmetics treatment rooms for private beauty services,

the NM Cafe, a special event room, gift packaging, and tailor and alteration services.

In addition, Neiman Marcus offered in Walnut Creek several different types of boutiques featuring brands such as Chanel, Gucci, Balenciaga, Armani Collision, Ermenegild­o Zenga, Brunello Cucinelli, Jil Sander, Michael Kors, and Stella McCartney.
