A place to talk about any topic on your mind (non-broadcasting related). General conversation.
One of the last times I was in the tool section at Sears, another gentleman and I were talking about how wonderful it was shopping in the store years ago when it was on top. It was like being at a visitation at a funeral home.
I suppose that's one way to look at it. Keep in mind that liquidators often hike regular prices before applying discounts. Not to say there aren't deals to be had, but the advertised 90% discount might be closer to 50 or 60%. Not to mention all sales are final, making it impossible to return or exchange a defective item. Liquidation sales can provide some great deals, but there's a degree of risk as well.LTL-FTC wrote: ↑Wed Jan 02, 2019 7:17 amHere in Charlevoix the Kmart is in the final week of their close out sale. Everything is 90%+ off. The parking lot has been full - checkout lines stretch to the back of the store - checkout wait was 2 hours. One person defended waiting that long saying it was like earning $300/hr. The pharmacy closed withing a week of the announcement and the accounts were sold off the Wallgreen or Rite Aid.
It's okay to be bored once in a while.
2 hour lines to check out at Kmart? Reminds me of a typical Saturday at most of their stores in the late 80s & early 90s!
Thanks, corporate radio, for finally tossing Nickelback to the curb. Now can you please do the same for Shinedown? THEY SUCK!!!
I often wonder how former department store chains such as Big Wheel and Ames would survive in today's market if they still existed?
