Should I close a credit card account?
I have an HHGregg credit card, issued by Synchrony bank. I have a 0 balance. HHGregg went out of business but Synchrony bank has linked my card to other similar businesses. I am not interested in using those other businesses, but closing this account will hurt my credit score correct? Looking for advice.

You are right that closing the card is not a good idea.  You can just lock it away someplace safe and let it die a natural death due to ageing, which won't hurt as much.
