Pier 1

Pier 1 Imports is a chain of shops from Houston, Texas offering an eclectic selection of home furnishings, kitchen items and decor.

The first store was opened as Cost Plus Imports in San Mateo, California in 1962 marketing to hippy baby boomers. They moved corporate headquarters to Houston in 1966. The chain had about 100 stores when it went public in 1970 on the American Stock Exchange. They now trade on the NYSE with the symbol PIR. In 2014, Pier 1 had over 1000 stores and 17,000 employees.

This is a video talking about the rise and current decline of the store.

Pier 1 filed bankruptcy and closed all of its stores in 1000. Retail Ecommerce Ventures acquired intellectual property and select assets to create an online only store.
