Re: Payless ShoeSource Liquidating

I am surprised this didn't happen sooner. A lot of their shoes are pretty low quality and you can usually find better stuff at places like Walmart and often at better prices.

Local stores and small chains that have online ordering/pick-up options

Re: Let’s talk about Kroger Pay.

Call me old-fashioned, but I absolutely refuse to have any links to any financial information tied to my cell phone. This includes credit cards etc.

Re: LATimes.com ranks french fries

As for fries, the one that seems to be most up for debate is Arby's. A lot of people (including my wife) love the Arby's curly fries, but I can barely stand them. It seems a lot of the time they somehow manage to be undercooked and overcooked at the same time, and the seasoning just doesn't work fo...

Re: Winter Storm panic shopping

Was on Fred Meyer's website tonight and they had pretty much all of the Western Washington stores listed from Tumwater north as closing early. South of Tumwater conditions were not as bad. I also noticed that Richland and Kennewick were listed.

Re: GGP Acquired By Brookfield Asset Management

This is old new that I just read about today for the first time. GGP was acquired in August by Brookfield.

Re: Macy's announces new round of closings

Macy's never went into small towns on their own. Either they were inherited from buyouts of other chains like May Company and Carter Hawley Hale, or were lured in some other way, like the Tracy, CA store, which is a one-story former Gottschalks that the city paid Macy's with a surplus to move into....
