This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Sadly, the in-store shopping experience may be coming to an end for those who are nostalgic for it or simply prefer to shop in-store. Digital shopping services such as Amazon are dominating right now, causing many brick-and-mortar stores to, unfortunately, go out of business. Since 2017 alone, we’ve seen over 20,000 businesses close their doors, according to The Krazy Coupon Lady.

In addition to the coronavirus pandemic causing a major drop in sales, this has only caused a greater struggle for the already-suffering stores. Here’s a complete list of the stores closing by the end of 2020.

1. Pier 1 Imports
