I know for me personally, I haven't shopped in a Sears Store in over 20 years. Outside of Craftsman tools, (which they lost that exclusivity years ago) what the hell does Sears have to offer, they're just a store, period.
Sears was one of the many companies that destroyed the local home town hardware stores. We stood there and watched companies like Sears and WalMart slowly kill local businesses and didn't do a thing about it. Instead, more people shopped there because the price was less, how do you like it now?
Amazon is now cornering the market by making sure, (within 10 years) you never visit another mall or store again. So what will you do about it this time? My guess, NOTHING. Idiots like Jake Day will watch the malls disappear, yet put out press releases expressing how commercial property values are on the rise, PLLLLLEASE!
Yeah, kinda like when Palmer Gillis bought the old Feldman's property on the river for $5,000.00. Yes, that's not a typo, I said five thousand dollars. Yet we are supposed to believe commercial properties are on the rise while the City keeps selling off parking lots for pennies on the dollar as well.
K-Mart and Sears are gone, big deal. Leave it to WBOC to find Idiots out there who will go on camera and talk about how this is such a hardship on our community.
Sears, you refused to keep up with the times, you failed, goodbye. The ONLY sorrow I will have about Sears closing in Salisbury is for the employees who will be out of so many jobs. Expect Jake Day to put out a press release next week stating how unemployment is at an all time low in Salisbury because so many Idiots will believe it.
Time to build some more affordable housing in Salisbury. Hey Salisbury, "It's Happening".
