Gymboree is shutting down hundreds of its stores, which also include Crazy 8, in the coming weeks. The silver lining is that you’ll be able to score some great deals at the closing sales.

In a press release today, the kids clothing retailer, Gymboree, announced it is closing 350 of its locations after filing for bankruptcy protection last month. Gymboree corp. also owns Crazy 8 and Jack and Janie, but as of now the closures will mostly apply to Gymboree and Crazy 8 stores. You can search by state for the specific locations that are closing down here. Even with the closures, however, the company will still have 900 stores operating among the three brands, so you’ll likely still have access to one near you, as well as being able to shop online.

The locations that are closing will begin holding sales next Tuesday, so you should be able to get some good deals right in time for back-to-school shopping.
