Latest Bankrupcy: Joe's Sports & Outdoor

The Oregon retailing icon, bought by the equity firm Gryphon Investors of San Francisco in 2007, has no immediate plans for layoffs and will cover its 1,600 employees' salaries and benefits through a potential sale, said John Mangan, a Joe's spokesman.

Mangan said he was unaware of any potential buyers or discussions.

"This filing gives us time to continue to operate all of (Joe's) 30 stores while it can work on options," Mangan said of the sporting goods chain, which operates in Oregon, Washington and Idaho. The company said the $50 million it recently secured in debtor-in-possession financing also could help on that front.
