The Englewood-based chain -- reportedly headed for a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing -- confirmed Wednesday to the Denver Business Journal's Molly Armbrister that it will close the Sports Castle as well as stores in Greenwood Village and Boulder as part of a plan to shutter as many as 140 of its 450 locations nationwide.
