I knew it was going to happen sooner or later. I just didn’t know when. All of the stores I’ve worked at and been to, including some that were the size of small cities, have gone out of business in the last 20 years.
It just keeps going. Amazon’s been going through a rough patch. Its first major retail store closure was in 2004, when the store lost its license from the state. Since then, it’s been hit by several other closures.
In 2004, the store was sold to a company owned by the same man who owns Sears, Kmart, and JCPenney. The guy who bought it sold it to a private owner who just happened to be an acquaintance of his. The store was closed for a few days and was bought by a chain called K-Mart, but as time went on it got worse and worse. It didn’t even have enough money to pay its bills.
In the last few months, the store has been in the news quite a bit. A couple of articles have been published about it. According to a story by “ZDNet’s” Dave Winer, the store was sold to a private owner in order to save it from closing. The owner lost it in bankruptcy court, and the chain it was a part of ended up shuttering it for good.
According to Winer, the owner of the store is none other than the son of the late, great, George Burns. This means that Burns has a vested interest in its salvation. If Burns didn’t like the store, he could have just bought it. But since he did, the store is now under the control of Uncle Sam’s own retailing giant.
Uncle Sams’ retailing empire consists of a whole lot of companies, but its biggest competitor is its own retail giant, Costco. Since we are all so familiar with Uncle Sams retailing empire, I was a bit surprised at how little he actually has to say about it. It’s hard to believe that any of these companies actually want to save the store itself, but it looks like Uncle Sam has a plan to turn it into a great tourist attraction.
After all, if the store is going to stay open, it needs to be a tourist destination. If you can walk down the street with all the cash you could probably convince a few people to buy it. If you’re walking around with all the cash you’ve got, you might as well go to Costco. That’s why Uncle Sam is looking to buy it out, and I’m sure that they are still waiting to see if Costco can actually make that happen.
The idea behind this is that Uncle Sam wants to make sure that tourists aren’t using the store to stock up on their personal supplies. The only way the store could be open is if all the cash was in the till and customers were buying supplies to go back to the store. You might get that, but with this, youll have to have all the cash you can get your hands on.
The big question is how much cash is required to make this happen, and if it is going to be available at all. In short, it’s going to be hard. The last time we saw the store, we saw it sitting on a shelf, empty, and there was no sign of life. It’s going to be hard to get these supplies in now, though. The store will definitely need to be stocked up on supplies.
Like I explained on the trailer, there’s a lot of stuff to buy. So it won’t be easy to get it all, but we’re definitely hoping it will happen at some point.
