Re: Sears/Kmart Death Watch 2018

Why not? If the store near you is closing, you may be able to get a good price on those items (which aren't always available at the kind of discounts that show up during closings, particularly if they hang out till later in the sale). If they aren't, still no reason not to buy them there if they ha...

Re: Wal Mart Cashier "Seating Lawsuit"

A while back I came across this video (in an unknown grocery store, I presume U.K.) from 1978, which shows all of the cashiers seated, and ringing up the purchases on non-scanning NCR 255 registers.

Re: Albertsons/Safeway 2018: Openings and Closings

Factoria was originally one of the Pay 'n Save mall developments, with a Pay 'n Save store on one side and an Ernst Hardware (where the Old Navy is now) on the other, with a Lamonts in between. From what I understand the mall is going to get a major redevelopment along the lines of what happened to...

Re: Sears/Kmart Death Watch 2018

A lot of the comments here are using shocking or surprising as to what locations are staying or going. The chain is dead. There is no rhyme or reason why locations are staying open or closing. Today's events will make things spiral downward faster for any location still open. Why would you buy any ...

Re: Sears/Kmart Death Watch 2018

This USA Today article has a visual of the 142 announced closures. https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2018/10/15/sears-bankruptcy/1595399002/ Washington Square isn't shocking (seeing as the other Portland area stores are gone and now Salem) but it really is well lit and (for a Sears Holdings stor...

Re: Sears/Kmart Death Watch 2018

Here is a list of Sears and Kmart stores closing: https://www.businessinsider.com/sears-kmart-stores-closing-list-2018-10 A couple thoughts about some locations I am familiar with: Beaverton, Oregon: This store should have closed a long time ago as it is rundown inside and out. Worth noting is that...

Pay 'N Save was absorbed by PayLess Drug, which then was absorbed by Rite Aid. It's more likely Rite Aid is in the original Pay 'N Save space.

Re: Sears/Kmart Death Watch 2018

Considering store locations that have closed and are closing and the speculation of bankruptcy proceedings, Sears Holdings has reached its end. Sears and Kmart stores could utilize the holiday season to make sales and liquidate merchandise, fixtures, and assets, then they could close in January. Or...

Re: JCPenney closing Northgate Mall Seattle store in 2019

I doubt Nordstrom would replace their store. They're in a store pruning phase. I read an interview with the Nordstrom brothers a while back that said they overstored the west coast. They're current pattern is to have 2-3 full-line stores max in a metro area. One of the Seattle stores will eventuall...
