I hate it when stores close
We've lost so many great stores over the years. We went in Circuit city on Sat. I figured it would be all junk left & it was. I know most people look at it like "Yay, there will be markdowns & clearances" when a store closes. But I look at it like the store is gone forever. Some of my faves that are gone are Ann & Hope, Rich's, Caldor, Ames (Zayres), Linens n' things, Lechmere & Filene's (my all-time fave that we lost). That's all New england (Northshore area). It seems like they close a store if there's more than 1 of it. Like they closed Linen's n' things, but we still have Bed, Bath & Beyond. Does that mean that we might lose either Michaels or AC Moore or Bath & Body works or The body shop? I'm sure I'm forgetting some stores that closed. You can add some if you think of any or if you have any stores in your area that closed.
