Gymboree is closing more than 300 stores across the country and two local stores are on the hit list.

The full closing list has stores from across the country as the company prepares to exit bankruptcy proceedings. Five locations in Louisiana will be closing beginning today. This includes:

Gymboree Mall Saint Vincent  318.221.7225
Gymboree Outlet Louisiana Boardwalk Outlet 318.742.6612

"This was a difficult decision to make, but we are confident that it is in the best long-term interest of our Company, our customers and our broader employee base," CEO Daniel Griesemer said in a statement.

As of April, the San Francisco-based company operated about 1,280 locations. It also owns the Janie and Jack and Crazy 8 brands, and has more than 11,000 employees.
