Re: SteinMart Files for Bankruptcy.

I doubt that they target over-55s. Even though that group often has a lot of disposable income,--they don't buy a lot of new stuff. Something resembling fashion usually targets 18-49 year olds with more preference for the younger end. What they targeted and what they got may be two different things...

Re: Stores Returning to Regular Hours

Wal Mart has walked a TON of sales to other grocery competitors with this 8:30 PM closing time, in addition to over to Target. I cannot believe how busy Safeway, Smiths, Target, and WinCo locations are at 8:30 PM and up until past 10 PM. I guess Wal Mart finally realized they need to stop this and ...

Re: Turning up the AC in stores?

I've noticed that wearing a mask makes things feel warmer as well.

I know I want to spend as little time in a store as possible with a mask on.

Re: Metrocenter Mall in Phoenix to close

It lost its ice rink (one of the defining features of the mall) back in the early 1990s and most of the anchors have also left. I don't even think Walmart connects to the mall, and it certainly doesn't connect to the upper level if it did. The Walmart was built on the site of the former Macy's stor...

Re: Capitol Hill Trader Joe’s indefinitely Closed

What about the QFC and Bartell a couple blocks away? That QFC stopped offering public restrooms due to issues that were taking place. Literally walled off the hallway. I think this neighborhood has been struggling for the past few with increased crime and drug usage among those around it (huge slid...

Re: JC Penney Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection

Walmart is contemplating closing stores right now. They are being hit hard by looters practically every night this week. This is so ridiculous, that the store gets looted and then restocked the next day. Then the store is looted again, and then restocked the next day. Target is also fearful. They a...

Re: JC Penney Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection

Looking at the list for Arizona they are closing a small town location in Cottonwood and 2 "inner ring" locations in Phoenix and Tucson. The Phoenix store's demise is probably tied to the demise of the Costco in the same shopping center (one of the few Costcos to close without a new location nearby...

Re: JC Penney Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection

It seems like every failing company floats rumors that Amazon is looking into buying it. A few weeks ago it was floated that Amazon was looking into buying AMC Theatres. Amazon has also been floated around as a buyer of Albertsons and Safeway in the past.
