The chain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in November 2008.[1] It moved to close 35 of its 45 stores in December 2008 following a bankruptcy court auction. The Chapter 11 reorganization was converted to Chapter 7 liquidation on February 26, 2009.[1]

Some of NWL's assets were acquired out of bankruptcy by NSC Wholesale Holdings Inc., operated by former NWL executives.[2] As of January 2015, it operates 11 retail locations in New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts.[3]
