Retail Stores Closing in 2008

I dont usually believe emails that come to me in a forward, but I looked it up and I found alot of sources to back these retail store closures, and I was kinda shocked. Have a look.

I wanted to give everyone a heads up that if you tend to give gift cards around the holidays, you need to be careful that the cards will be honored after the holidays.

Stores that are planning to close after Christmas are still selling the cards through the holidays even though the cards will be worthless January 1. There is no law preventing them from doing this. On the contrary, it is referred to as bankruptcy Planning). Below is a partial list of stores that you need to be cautious about.

Stores to Close

  • Circuit City (filed Chapter 11)
  • Ann Taylor- 117 stores nationwide closing
