Edwin Watts in moving to close its St. Louis store as part of the chain's post-bankruptcy reorganization. Early plans call for EW to retain 49 of its 91 stores.

 

In December, a bankruptcy judge approved the sale of EW to Worldwide Golf Shops and Hilco Merchant Resources LLC.

 

EW entered St. Louis in summer 2011, occupying the site of a shuttered Golf Discount store. EW never really gained traction locally. Early indications of problems: With little fanfare, EW scheduled its grand opening the same weekend as a major demo event by a competitor.

 

Anyone else have an EW store that's closing?
