According to WMTW, the company is carrying too much debt and can no longer support the more than 100 retail locations they have nationwide. There is potential that Brookstone remains operation as an online retailer and is hopeful that their locations in airports can also stay operational.

The company was founded in 1973 and for many years was based out of Merrimack, New Hampshire.
