the GAP... i don't shop there, i don't even step foot into their stores. Eddie Bauer.. hockey player... so clothes? baby stuff? uh-huh... sure.
Circuit City concerns me... since a bit ago they bought up Radio Shack and turned them into The Source by Circuit City. Gee thanks...

All that a side... it's a lot of jobs lost. I'm really surprised about Macy's we don't have them here, nor have I been in one, but i do know ppl who go across the border and shop there... it's so weird. Walmart is doing fine tho, naturally. Talk of them building a 4th store here in London. Cuz the huge one, the clarke rd one that's open 24 hrs, and the one at white oaks mall that just happens to be the busiest most successful walmart in Canada... just isn't enough?

Ouch... although some of those names I've never heard of (must not have any stores at this end of the country). Toss in whatever the government thinks it's trying to do in Ottawa @_@

Eddie Bauer is actually a decent place to shop for jeans and outerware... I've popped in there a few times for new jackets.

Gap... damn. Wonder if that includes Gap Kids... I get eldest son's kahkis there :(

bombay closing all stores... hmmmm, that means close out sales ;) Love their stuff, hate the prices.

OMG it's Dragon!

currently, and i knock on wood here, HBC is untouched, and Lord & Taylor, since both are owned by the same company now, so that's good for me.

Still major concern all round.
