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, and seven of those are in Texas.

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 is one in Austin, three in Dallas-Fort Worth, and three in Houston. The lone San Antonio store, at The Shops at La Cantera, remains unaffected.

You have until the end of July to shop in-person at The Arboretum location in Austin, The Shops at Clearfork in Fort Worth (which only opened in 2017), Watters Creek in Allen, the Dallas Galleria, Houston's Highland Village, Market Street in The Woodlands, and Sugar Land Town Square.

In addition to San Antonio, only four other Texas stores remain: Houston's CityCentre, Knox Street in Dallas, Southlake, and at The Shops at Willow Bend in Plano.

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.
