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 feel bad for bringing this up again earlier this morning. I was off line all day yesterday so didn't see about Benny's thread. Good idea to keep it all in one place for easy referencing back in case someone actually can come up with a good idea and can use the thread as evidence to make proposals to the powers that be. I copied my earlier post and added a bit to it in the "Big Bear Snowplay" thread. I do think a little quick cross traffic between here and there might be a good thing though.
