About Fred's, Inc.

With a quickly dwindling number of locations, discount retailer Fred's is wrapping up operations. In 2019 it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and announced plans to liquidate all assets. The company formerly operated hundreds of discount stores and pharmacies, primarily in small- to medium-sized towns across the southeastern US. The stores carried more than 12,000 brand-name, off-brand, and private-label products, including pharmaceuticals, household goods, clothing and linens, food and tobacco items, health and beauty aids, and paper and cleaning supplies. Fred's traces its historical roots back to 1947.


In September 2019 Fred's filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and announced plans to sell all its assets by the end of the year. The company was unable to recover from an aborted move into personal healthcare when its plan to acquire hundreds of Rite Aid pharmacies in 2017 was thwarted by Walgreens Boots Alliance and regulators.
