Say Bye-Bye

Have you notices all the empty shopping centers and store fronts lately. Here’s a list of retailers going out business, closing SOME stores or re-inventing themselves to survive in this changing market.

B. Dalton Bookstores-the mall bookstore as I like to call it. I’ve purchased things from here but now where near as often as the big names shops Borders and Barnes and Noble.
Liz Claiborne– I’ve never even seen a standalone Liz store. I mean I’ve seen the name in department stores and discount joints like TJ Maxx.
Movie Gallery– With all the Redbox and Blockbuster kiosks around and the obscene amount of free codes floating around I doubt we’d ever set foot in another movie rental store.
AJ Wright-I’ve heard commercials for this store and figured it was something like a TJMaxx. It’s a place I would enjoy shopping in but never had the pleasure.
PH8– the Bebe offspring that died before it even had a chance to breathe.
Borders-What a powerhouse bookseller. I wonder where they went wrong? About 1/3 of their stores will close.
Blockbuster-Again, the emergence of the convenient NetFlix and the inexpensive kiosks that rent DVDs, Blue-rays and games have killed this movie rental giant.
Quiznos– Eh…I’ve never really been a fan. The commercials make the sandwiches so good but in real life they weren’t so good. If I want a hoagie I’ll go a couple local places that do them right
Nine West-Growing up I’ve always thought of them as fancy shoes. They were go-tos when I worked but today I sport a mean flip-flop.
F.Y.E.-I don’t know the last time I bought a CD. DVDs and Blu-rays we do buy but the prices are better at Target, Best Buy and Walmart.
