“We have completed a comprehensive review of our retail operations segment,” said Morris Goldfarb, president and CEO of G-III, in a press release in June. “With a focus on improving shareholder value, we made the difficult decision to close all Wilsons Leather and GH Bass stores and entered into agreements for the early termination of the lease of a large majority of these stores. We believe that this restructuring plan will allow us to considerably reduce our commercial losses and ultimately to make this segment profitable. “
GH Bass Co. was founded by George Henry Bass in Maine in 1876.
