Long before there was a HomeGoods on every suburban street corner, there was Pier 1, the eclectic, boho-inspired retailer that was a staple of '90s strip malls. If you haven't heard the news, we're sad to report that Pier 1 is going out of business. After struggling for years, shuttering many of its local retail stores, the company announced in May that it was closing all of its remaining locations and its website.

While Pier 1 started posting deep discounts on its website a couple of weeks ago, its stores have remained closed until now. This week they announced their in-store going out of business sale, which kicked off on Friday, June 5. The sale is happening only at Pier 1 locations is states where retail operations have resumed, so check the Pier 1 website if you have any questions about whether or not it's taking place near you. 

So what's on sale? Well, everything. From outdoor furniture, to sofas, to a wide selection global-inspired dinnerware and decor, and their hallmark papasan chairs, basically everything at Pier 1 is currently up for grabs at a bargain.

The best discounts we've seen are on:

  • Outdoor furniture, 40 percent off
  • Wall art, 40 percent off
  • Outdoor cushions and throw pillows, 30 percent off
  • Bar stools and dining chairs, 25 percent off

The rest of the store is up to 30 percent off. 

If you don't live near a Pier 1, or your local store is still closed, you can still shop the sale online. We combed through the Pier 1 website to find the best buys (and for a scroll down memory lane), and listed nine of our top picks below.
