INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis-based hhgregg is closing 88 stores as part of its "turnaround" efforts, the company announced Thursday morning.

None of the 88 stores are located in Indiana, but there are many in Illinois and Ohio.

“We are strategically exiting markets and stores that are not financially profitable for us,” Robert J. Riesbeck, hhgregg's President and CEO, said in a statement. “This is a proactive decision to streamline our store footprint in the markets where we have been, and will continue to be, important to our customers, vendor partners and communities."

The electronics and home appliances chain will be left with 132 stores.

“I understand this is not an easy process to go through; our history has shown that our team members will meet this challenge head-on and continue to support our customers and each other through the closing process,” Riesbeck said.
