Z Gallerie, Ultra File for Bankruptcy

Two more retailers filed for bankruptcy. Ultra Stores--with 181 locations--and Z Gallerie.

Z Gallerie Inc., a Gardena, Calif.-based home decor retailer with two stores in Dallas, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Friday.

The privately held chain said it voluntarily filed to remove its liability from leases and to strengthen its balance sheet.

Last month, it closed a distribution center in Atlanta and 21 stores, leaving several markets. A spokesman said there are no plans to close its seven Texas stores.

Z Gallerie operates 56 stores in 18 states.
