Are any consumer electronics retailers opening new brick and mortar locations? I think we can expect fewer of these stores in coming years, not more of them. The question is which chains will shutter and which will survive the next 10 years. I think it's pretty obvious that K-Mart and Sears are going to completely close.

Any retailer that doesn't have a good online presence that compliments their brick and mortar locations will have a tough time surviving. Best Buy seems to be doing a good job of this. Will be interesting to see how Amazon changes Whole Foods.

People now expect to have the ability to compare prices and read reviews of different products from the comfort of home before ordering it, having it delivered to the store, or going to the store to buy it. Having the ability to return items ordered online to a physical store is a plus. Generous return policies are also a plus. Stores like Sears and Kmart with weak online presence and poor customer service are definitely going to fail.

Kmart and Sears getting out of the way would benefit other retailers like JCP. JCP has already added appliances and considering other home services. Sounds like they are preparing to pick up the slack.

I agree about the returns AginGreer. I had a major dept store manager tell me recently that internet is still a small percentage of overall sales and 50% of internet sales end up being returned to the store. I am not sure internet sales are exactly doing well either. He said everything is a cycle and people are choosing to spend their money right now on experiences rather than things but it will cycle back around.

I was in there a week ago or so and the liquidation prices even at 50% off were still more than the normal sale prices at the Haywood store. Still lots of merch left. The signs still up around 11 am today. Did they close this afternoon?

Upstate Denny's to remain closed a little longer

The Wade Hampton Denny's has now been taken over by Corporate. There's been lots of activity as they're working on it. Possible re-opening on July 5: Denny's Greenville

Default Denny's, 2521 Wade Hampton Boulevard, Greenville, South Carolina 29615-1147

I am looking forward to dining at Denny's again.

When a location goes through a revolving door of franchisees, it is a smart idea for corporate to take over the location to operate it to standards. I hope the Greenville location will be a model for additional (corporate) locations going forward.
