I begin by sharing Erik's update on JCPenney, JCPenney: Bankrupt & Out Of Time.
In this episode of Retail Archaeology we take a look at JCPenney and go over some of latest news about them. This location in this episode is at Paradise Valley Mall, a dead mall in Phoenix, AZ.The answer to "is JCPenney the next Sears?" is still yes. At least Sears and KMart avoided liquidation. That's a better prognosis than for the subject of Erik's next video update on a retail bankruptcy, Game Over For Stein Mart.
In this episode of Retail Archaeology we take a look a Stein Mart. Stein Mart is a 112 year old department store chain that just filed for bankruptcy and is closing all of their locations.Stein Mart's fate makes it the next Toys R Us without the rebirth, although I could be wrong. RadioShack returned after I had given up hope.
That's it for the Retail Apocalypse for today. Stay tuned for a drinking game, memes, and drinks for this year's Vice Presidential Debate between Kamala Harris and Mike Pence. That promises to be better behaved than last week's WWE match of a debate.
