Two stores are closing at the Pismo Beach Premium Outlets: DC Shoes and Izod.

Izod, which sells sportswear, golf wear and performance wear, will close on Oct. 25, though it may shut its doors earlier depending on its remaining stock, said assistant manager Amber Shatley.

DC Shoes, which sells sports footwear and apparel, is closing Dec. 31 or earlier, depending on its remaining inventory, according to an assistant store manager.

The Tribune was unable to learn what stores will move into their spaces.

DC Shoes’ closure is a result of the U.S. division of Quicksilver, which owns DC Shoes, filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Sept. 9, the store representative said. Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows a company to fend off creditors while working out a plan to repay debts. The store’s stock is 30 percent to 50 percent off.

Izod, located in the shopping center between PacSun and Zumiez, is closing because of a corporate decision, a company representative said. No further information could be learned. The store’s inventory is 80 percent off.

Discounts at both stores will increase until they close.
