Fresno’s Patrick James blames COVID for bankruptcy, closures

The coronavirus pandemic has caused Patrick James, the Fresno-based men’s clothing retailer, to file for bankruptcy with plans to close stores.

The company has sold upscale men’s clothing – like Tommy Bahama and its own line of shirts and jackets – since 1962.

It has 11 stores in California, Nevada and Arizona, plus a temporary pop-up store in River Park near Ruth’s Chris Steak House through the end of the month.

The company announced last week that it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. It’s a reorganization, not a liquidation.

Patrick James has more than $7 million in debt, and its bankruptcy was filed under a special designation for small businesses during the coronavirus pandemic.

“They’re scared that the clock would be turned back to a time when women had no right to control their own bodies. And when it was acceptable to discriminate against women in the workplace,” Leahy said. “They’re scared that at a time when we’re facing the perilous impacts of climate change, bedrock environmental protections are going to be eviscerated. And they’re scared that your confirmation will result in the rolling back of voting rights, workers’ rights, and the rights of the LGBTQ
