Disney is closing several of its retail outlets across America. Every Disney store that is closing will be issuing 15% off total purchase coupons that can be used another Disney store retail outlet. They will also have an online shopping code that can be used at ShopDisney.com by entering the Disney website coupon code into the order form at checkout.
Since many cities have more than one Disney store, parents of kids who love Disney might want to watch for when their (mostly) local Disney store will be closing and drop by for both the free 15% coupons, as well as any markdowns and clearance prices that they might have. Rather than ship stuff back to the warehouse, closing stores will likely offer sales and prices below what you can usually get as a great deal at the Disney Outlet website at Disneyoutlet.com
Here is the details from the official Disney press release. All stores will be closing within “the next few months” during 2010. Check and see if there is one near you going out of business and then keep an eye on the local news for details about the closing, or watch the Disney.com website.
Disney Store Closing Several Stores to Focus on New Interactive Stores
This statement was released by Disney Stores. We lost our Disney Store several years ago in the first round of closings, and it was absolutely heart-wrenching for me. I know there are going to be many people very upset about this, and I just want you to know that my heart goes out to you. I definitely know the feeling of having your local “touch of Disney magic” closed down.
Press release as follows:
Making the decision to not renew a store lease is never easy and we take these types of decisions very seriously. We value Disney Store cast members and our guests, and hope that for those of you affected, you will continue to be a Disney Store fan. The stores that will be closed over the next few months are listed below and will begin to offer discounts and clearance specials soon.
Closing stores will also provide coupon offers in-store good for 15% off your entire purchase at participating alternate locations. DisneyStore.com will offer 15% off your entire purchase and free shipping for all purchases over $50. Limited time only. Offers may vary by store. Please visit your closing store for more discount offers and more details.
We continue to plan for the future and look forward to launching newly designed Disney Stores across the US and Europe. Look for these highly interactive new stores to roll out over the next five years.
Again, thank you for your continued support and remaining a loyal fan to the Disney Store.

For those of you in Colorado, you may have noticed that the Disney Store at Southwest Plaza is on the list of closures. The one in the Park Meadows Mall closed some time ago, but there is still a Disney Store up in the Flatirons Mall. So, watch for the Southwest store to start going out of business and then head down for the big sales and the coupon. Then you can use it up at the Disney store in Broomfield.
