English: Goody's is a brand used for some clothing stores operated by Stage Stores, of Houston. It is a successor to Goody's Family Clothing, a defunct chain of clothing retailers that was based in Knoxville. At one time Goody's Family Clothing operated close to 500 stores in the U.S South and Midwest, including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia. In January 2009 the company declared bankruptcy and announced that it would close. The last stores closed their doors for the final time on February 28, 2009. In July 2009, Stage Stores Inc. acquired the rights to the Goody's name. In 2010, Stage Stores Inc. reported to re-open Goody's stores and might continue to expand old locations nationwide. In late 2010, Goody's Family Clothing opened 17 new stores in the Southeast. However, there are plans to open or re-open some stores across the Midwest and Southeast in late 2011 and early 2012.
