Wickes to close its five Minneapolis-area stores

And concentrate on Portland, OR.
The Top 100 company will close all five of its Minnesota stores and its Brooklyn Center, Minn., distribution center and “part of the company’s continuing strategy to focus its resources in high-growth markets including California, Chicago, Portland (Ore.) and Las Vegas,” Wickes said in a release.


The company said it is opening 10 new showrooms in those markets this year.

I counted 10 Cranes in the downtown Portland area this weekend, and might have missed a couple.
