Struggling home decor chain Z Gallerie is retrenching, with plans to close more than two dozen stores across the country.

The retailer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy earlier this year, according to the Dallas Morning News, and is in the process of rejecting leases for some underperforming stores.

DirectBuy has acquired the company out of bankruptcy with a winning bid of $20.3 million.

This is the second time Z Gallerie has filed for bankruptcy. The first was in 2009.
