Pursuant to Order of the Bankruptcy Court, Case No. 3:20-bk-2387, United States Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida, Stein Mart was authorized “to maintain and administer the Customer Programs and honor any related pre-petition obligations in the ordinary course of business and consistent with past practice, as necessary and appropriate in the Debtors’ business judgment,” including honoring gift cards through September 21, 2020.  As of September 22, 2020, Stein Mart is no longer honoring cards or merchandise credits. If you have a Stein Mart gift card or merchandise credit that you did not use or redeem before September 21, 2020, you are entitled to file a proof of claim by October 21, 2020, the Bankruptcy Court-approved bar date deadline, as previously noticed on this website, https://cases.stretto.com/SteinMart. The instructions for filing a proof of claim also may be found on this website, by clicking on File a Claim . The filing of a proof of claim does not automatically mean that you have an allowed claim or assure that you will recover any money on account of your claim in the Bankruptcy Case. Neither Stretto nor Stein Mart provides legal advice to creditors.
