I just heard that the Canadian Linens and Things is also going out of business.  Apparently the unprofitable American wing is pulling them down.  They have been profitable.

And dang, couldn't they hang on for longer?  I'm in the middle of nowhere, I kid you not, we don't even have a restaurant in town.  I wanna go bargin shopping.  I love their stuff.  Maybe they will still be around for xmas...

This reminds me of the early 80s.  The deals you got shopping were incredible.  I had no idea at the time that that was a precurser to hard times, basically a cut throat to get business until the weak go under.

It's too bad they couldn't somehow manage to sever ties with their American counterparts and just keep open the profitable Canadian part of the operations.

lol alstry, sure, we don't even have a restaurant in town but you think we have Costco?  The closest Costco to where I live is in Prince George which is about 1000 kms away, or a 10 hour drive.  Maybe there is one in Grand Prairie, which I think is an 8 hour drive....

Lordz, no deals here in the hamlet (too small to call a town).  Milk is about $10-11/gallon, gas about $6/gallon...
