Store closing or liquidation sales are a routine part of Chapter 11 cases involving retail debtors. These sales are consistently authorized by bankruptcy courts, despite lease provisions purporting to forbid them. See, In re R.H. Macy & Co., 170 B.R. 69, 77 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. 1994). The sales are usually conducted in accordance with “sale guidelines” proposed by the debtor for court approval. Moreover, bankruptcy courts can authorize store closing sales that would otherwise violate state and local laws since federal bankruptcy law may preempt laws that contravene the underlying policies of the Bankruptcy Code. See, In re Shenango Group, Inc., 186 B.R. 623, 628 (Bankr. W.D. Pa. 1995).
