"Right-sizing our store footprint is a central part of our efforts to ensure Gymboree emerges from this restructuring process as a stronger and more competitive organization", he added. One of the stores set to close is the Gymboree store at SouthPointe Pavilions mall at 27th Street and Pine Lake Road. More than 900 locations will remain open after the listed stores are shut down.

The chain has suffered thanks to declining mall traffic, online competition and fixed rent costs.

A dozen Gymboree stores are closing in Texas including locations at Vista Ridge Mall in Lewisville and the Collin Creek, Preston Park and Shops at Willow Bend shopping centers in Plano.

"This was a hard decision to make, but we are confident that it is in the best long-term interest of our Company, our customers and our broader employee base", Griesemer said in the statement.
