According to CNN, on Monday J. Crew announced it has filed to begin Chapter 11 proceedings in Virginia and has reached a deal with its lenders to convert approximately $1.65 billion in debt into equity.

In a statement, the company said its Madewell store chain will remain part of the J.Crew group and the retailer’s eCommerce businesses will continue to operate. J. Crew also plans to re-open retail locations as soon as the stay-at-home orders are lifted.
