Back in 2019, about 17 major retailers filed for brankruptcy, which resulted in over 9,500 store closures. While that may seem like a lot, 2020 is shaping up to be even more of a challenge for retailers, as 27 major retailers have already filed for bankruptcy, and we still have a few more months of the year left.

Though many of the retailers on the list below were already facing financial hardship, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has made matters even worse.
