Disney Stores Closing
Disney announced that they would be closing some of their brick-and-mortar stores as their focus has shifted to online shopping.
At least 20% of its brick-and-mortar Disney Store locations are scheduled to close by the end of the year. According to Disney, 60 of the North American locations will be affected. Currently, there are 300 Disney Stores worldwide.
I always loved visiting my local Disney store in our mall. If I could not be at Disney, it was the next closest thing.
Local stores often held events such as birthday parties, special store offerings and sometimes if you got there early enough, you could open the store!

We at Kenny the Pirate are so sorry to hear of so many local stores closing across the United States and Canada. We are hoping Cast Members across these store locations will be able to find new positions, whether it is somewhere else or with The Walt Disney Company.
While it’s sad that so many local stores are closing, at least we know there are other store locations and we still have shopDisney.com. I know I will continue to keep them in business for as long as possible, as I am one of their most loyal customers!
To check and see if your local store is closing, you can also visit shopDisney.com and look under store locations.
