Appliance store hhgregg has announced that it will be closing 88 stores across the country, laying off 1,500 employees.

The company has struggled recently with low sales. Bloomberg news reported last week that the company  is preparing to file for bankruptcy.

“We are strategically exiting markets and stores that are not financially profitable for us,” hhgregg CEO Robert Riesbeck said in a statement. “This is a proactive decision to streamline our store footprint in the markets where we have been, and will continue to be, important to our customers, vendor partners and communities."

The stores are expected to be shuttered by mid-April.

Here is the list of stores slated to be closed.
