I predicted Pier 1... never could figure out how they manage to stay in business in the first place. And Gap... makes sense as well as their clothes are crap anymore. Not all woman are a size negitive zero nor are our arms 10-inches long

Pier 1 will still have over 1000 locations, even if they do close 80.

I've never been in one, so I'll have to take your word for it.

My point was that the company is not going under (as you implied), they are closing unprofitable and under-performing locations... something smart retailers do all the time, even during "good times".

I'm not surprised by Virgin Megastore. Every time I go in one, there aren't too many people in there. Even their Times Square location lacks people (compared to a ridiculous packed Garden State Plaza, yeah). It must be their prices which I notice are a bit pricey. Even their books are higher than normal bookstore prices. The Union Square one is even quieter!

I don't know if the economy is as bad as reported. I walk past many Starbucks every day, and there is still no shortage of people in there ordering that overpriced coffee.

I was in one on Friday and Yes I was browsing and so were the other 5 people in the store... very boring store. I never find anything that is worth paying for.

LMAO WILES! Negative zero. Now that is funny. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know, everytime I go to Gap, it is Gap Kids! Not Gap...they have shat there. Nothing fits right there!!

Pier One sucks. I never really got into the "wicker" feel...too contemporary or something. I will take my Home Goods anyday lol......I used to love Domain! but they closed!

Frank lol............I don't think I was ever a size 2. Well, maybe a 4 when I was living out West Coast at one time LOL>>>>>>
