PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Vestis Retail Group, the operator of Eastern Mountain Sports, Bob’s Stores and Sport Chalet, has filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection.

There is also a Bob’s Store location closing in Maine.
Here’s a list of stores that are closing:
- EMS locations: Christiana (DE), Dulles (VA), Foxborough (MA), Moorestown (NJ), North Brunswick (NJ), University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, PA), Warwick (RI) and West Hartford (CT)
