Levin had reached an agreement to rescue his business in March, but weeks later said the parent company of Levin Furniture and Wolf Furniture terminated the agreement to sell the businesses back to him, citing the coronavirus pandemic.

With that deal dead, Levin Furniture stores were going to enter into Chapter 7 bankruptcy and be liquidated.
