Sears in Hunt Valley Town Center, originally Hunt Valley Mall will close Sunday. The last vestige of the old Mall. I worked for the Mall for 7 years. Hard to believe it's all gone. The old Mall that is.

I always hear Canadians on the internet talking about buying stuff at Canadian Tire. Is that going to be the only store in Canada now?

My local Sears was awful. The automotive department treated me like a criminal once on a tire warranty. There were other incidents as well.
I thought Sears sucked, and sucked for a long time. I have no recollection of the Sears people talk about from the pre-1970 era.
My waxing nostalgic had more to do with my youth, and the old Mall than Sears.

Here's a shocker:
Walmart is abruptly closing 63 of its Sam's Club stores, the company told Business Insider. Some locations shut their doors as early as Thursday morning, with some employees finding out about the closures via stores with locked doors.
Notable: The closures came just hours after Walmart announced that it was raising starting wages, giving out one-time bonuses and expanding employee benefits, citing the recent GOP tax cuts.

Sam's is just not lucrative anymore. Although the one in Timonium (This is Texas although they do call it Texas Station) seems to be doing fine.
After some checking maybe they aren't doing so well. There is a massive Walmart right around the corner.

Things run in cycles, and maybe the sun is setting on warehouse clubs. Myself, I don't shop at Sam's or Costco because I don't feel like spending money on a membership for the privilege of spending more money. Plus me living alone, there isn't much I need to buy in bulk. I've never shopped at Costco, but I did have a Sam's card for a while. One of the things I did not like was not being able to rely on products being available on repeat visits in the brands I prefer. For example, I insist on stocking toilet paper that is soft as a mother's kiss, so my go-to brand is Charmin. Sometimes Sam's would have it, sometimes not. There are certain things I will not settle for what's on hand, and TP is one of them. I'd go in, sometimes they'd have Charmin, sometimes they'd have some off-brand John Wayne-style toilet paper. There just wasn't enough in a Sam's to make the membership worth renewing nor shopping there to offset what I would pay for the same products elsewhere.

^Yeah, Warehouse clubs have two types of members: 1) big families and 2) businesses.
So if you're not in one of those two groups you probably shop at a super market. And they probably don't do themselves any favors by trying to be all things to all people -- I mean, they sell furniture, computer items, eyeglasses and such, but don't most people go to specialists for that? Their overhead costs of lights and sq footage must be considerable as well.
Still, it's a shock that they just did this with zero notice. They must have wanted to head off bad press at the past.
More:

Anchorage has a Costco but Fairbanks does not.

Exactly. Still, if you have a massive Walmart around the corner doesn't this defeat the purpose?
The Sams in Timonium was built before the Super Walmart. Over a decade before. The second development wave of crap they stuck out here in the late 80''s, early 90's.
I see no point in Sam's club. And both my Parents had Memberships. My Father who has more money than he knows what to do with still probably does. Mother dumped hers.
I wonder if they close that Sam's. Another Massive hole around here.

Besides Crappy Tire, we also have Wally-mart. For higher end stuff, we still have The Bay.

Oh, by the way, how come FM45 isn't helping these retail stores by providing them with a stimulus package? I thought his mandate was jobs, jobs, jobs?

1) Because only women and coloreds work those retail jobs. He's worried about White Men only, hence his concentration on coal, steel and factories. (Of course, women and minorities work those jobs too or peripheral jobs but his message is clear.)
2) Actually, neither he nor any other president should prop up a failing company with no future. This has been coming in the headlights for a while now. I wouldn't save Toys R Us any more than I would save the coal industry.

You can buy Toy's anywhere. Kind of sad to see them go. When I was a little kid we would go to Montgomery Ward and wait forever for a catalog order, and we would go to Toy's R Us. And 15 years later Merry Go Rounds headquarters was across the street. Wiki says their headquarters were in Joppa Maryland but that was near the end. They were in Towson. Long gone.

Not a surprise. As we move further away from the Rock Era and as more young men would rather play video games more than instruments, guitar sales have been on a downward slide for a while.

Maybe my SG and studio Les Pauls will become collector's items in a few million years.

I only went to 'mine' a couple of days before Christmas to scope it out, and then after Christmas when the Christmas stuff was 75% to 90% off.
They couldn't stay alive off of people like me.
But I have forests of big bottle brush trees that were originally $35 and up, and paid like, nothing, for them.

Big-box retailers nationwide are slashing their property taxes through a legal loophole known as "dark store theory." For the towns that rely on that revenue, this could be a disaster.

^ Dollar stores are a plague on small towns. They send in their condescending a-hole developers to tell us dumb hicks that we can't say no. With zero to vague zoning towns are afraid to say no. And now every small town has at least one dollar store shitting up the landscape selling plastic crap and processed food that people think is cheaper.

I *will* say that when I'm at Target, I see cute things like repro pyrex or designer things or Christmas ornaments, and I make impulse purchases.

I don't make impulse purchases on amazon.

My nearest Target is 3+ hours away, and I would really love to be able to pop in now and then. But that's because it's well-stocked. If they go bare-bones, there would be no reason to go. That's what happened to Target in Canada. They opened all over Canada when I was living there, and a couple of years later they closed all over Canada. My neighbors and I waited with anticipation for the grand opening, only to find that they didn't carry the things that we had all seen in the stores in the U.S. They didn't even carry the things that were in the glossy magazine ads.

I also see things that look nice online, which I don't buy because I can't really see and touch them. Photos show a very attractive chair, but in person it turns out to be too lightweight, with flimsy hollow chrome legs that you can almost bend in your hands. Or a red velour throw pillow looks lush, but in person it's floofy fabric, with fibers that just fluff off on your hands, and it will fluff off onto your white couch. I don't care about return privileges. I want the item to be right the first time, not to be printing return labels and re-packing, making trips to the post office, and waiting for the refund, or calling them to say the refund hasn't been issued yet.

****

Like its first bankruptcy, a dispute over rent is at the forefront of Barneys most recent bankruptcy filing. Rent at its flagship on Madison Avenue jumped from roughly $16 million to about $30 million in January, nearly wiping out its earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.

The Madison Avenue store has been both a beacon and a burden for Barneys. It is its most important store, where it showcases its best products, reaches some of its most loyal shoppers and does nearly half of its sales. But those sales have been declining even as it's been pummeled by a rent hike.

High rent is not the only challenge facing Barneys as it's staring down new online competition like Yoox's Net-A-Porter and Moda Operandi, which are encroaching on the previously untouchable luxury retail space. The luxury brands are also pushing to have more shoppers buy directly from their own stores.

With these new outlets, brands are less dependent on Barneys than in times past. That's meant luxury brands have had less patience for slow payments amid Barneys' cash crunch.
