Zanesville will lose a sporting goods business located on Gorsky Drive.

After an effort to restructure their company MC Sports filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

According to a press release the company said liquidation of its stores was the only option in dealing with their immediate liquidity issues.

MC Sports said the company has faced increased competition from director to consumer sales and the growth of ecommerce.

Founded in 1946 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, MC Sports has been a leading retailer, selling sports gear, footwear and apparel throughout the Midwest.

MC Sports operates 68 locations in seven state including Ohio.
