Lowes has just announced a number of closures, about 4 - 5 in California.

K-Mart is quite bad off, financially worse than Sears. The Big Bear store appears quite busy and well-stocked but they are actually selling off existing inventory from other store closures. Nothing being added or reordered.

Serious questions arising about warranty support for Kenmore/Die Hard items already sold or to be sold.

Thanks Del. I did hear on the news that they were going to support all Sears warranty commitments regardless of how things go for the company. I just had sears up to fix my snowblower... No wonder its not snowing

Yes, but the K
-Mart portion may get sacrificed to save Sears.

If Sears/Kmart closes, rest assured another discount super store will end in its place, most likely a Walmart. Big Bear Kmart is one of the best performers in company. The Kenmore brand is likely going to be sold off along craftman and other highlights of Sears Brand.
Honestly, the last time I purchased something over $100 from either Sears or Kmart was 10 years ago.

But Lowes isn’t surprising, as hardware store they lack the edge of providing to professionals the way Home Depot or other lines can. Go to Home Depot in morning and see how many contractors are there, then head over Lowes. Also has my wife points out, Lowes has horrible customer service.
Sears had the infrastructure back in the early days of the internet and the name it could have been the Amazon of today. But they made bad business decisions.

Our basic BBV problem is lack of a full time population. Big stores want a large daily market. Our sole advantage is that the store would have no competition. Target???
I see that Staters is physically expanding.

Oh really? Did they gobble up a couple units adjoining them to the north? I rarely go in there so I dunno.... Just remember that it took forever to check out.

Yes, the north side is being expanded to allow bulk items.

OUR luck up here they would take that bldg and make it into a Dollar General, Big Lots, or some other subprime store.

Summer will be here soon!

I am not a flatlander but I do have a flat head.... forgot where I was going with this. Anyway, have a great Sunday everyone. Oh, I know, visit the Museum, sit in the shade with a cool sarsaparilla, and have a nice time. Yea, that was it.

From the other side of the coin: I was driving DTH, going the speed limit and had a line of cars in front of me. A old jeep came up on me very fast so I planned to use the next turnout. He didn't give me time to get there and he passed (illegally) on a curve only to nearly rear end the next car in line. He screamed at me as he went by. Did he have a woman in labor in the car? What on earth could be important enough to risk a head on collision? This isn't the only time I've had this happen over the years but it's usually a sports car. For those of you that flash you lights at me when I use the turnout for you...thanks! I always say" ahhh...you're welcome!" out loud. My dog probably thinks I'm insane. She could be right.

I drive the Idyllwild road from Palm Desert, faster than most. I am more comfortable on mountain roads than freeways, but if someone is behind me, ill gladly let them pass, or ill pull over.

Tlingit! I just think we all need to obey the law! If you want to drive slow, then pull over! That’s all

wolfman If you go to the CA DMV webpage you can obtain the information for Driving laws in 103 languages!! When you go into a DMV office to pick up a Driver's Lic handbook, you can barely find an English one but they have one for every language listed. In each of those books there is clearly stated about the turnouts. Just like you and I if we have California Driver's License we are signing off to knowing all these laws and nowadays anyone can get a license. SO maybe during busy season some more CHP monitoring is needed which also generates income for the State so people get the message. To put a sign up with all the languages would obstruct the beautiful views of the mountains. If a poll be taken I would bet that 99% of the people who speed up etc speck only English! Can I mention!fanit dumb drivers again?
