In the RED alert: Sears to Close 100 to 120 Kmart and Sears Stores

In the RED alert: Sears to Close 100 to 120 Kmart and Sears Stores

Big fan of Sears? Put down that coffee, I have some unfortunate news: Sears announced today in statement that they will have to close 100 to 120 Kmart and Sears stores. Chief Executive Officer Lou D’Ambrosio said the stores are part of a plan to “reduce on-going expenses, adjust our asset base, and accelerate the transformation of our business model.” Reuters reports that same-store sales at Kmart fell 4.4% during the current quarter through Dec. 25 and same-stores sales fell 6% at Sears. See? It’s your fault. You were all shopping at Target all last week and Sears got screwed. Bah humbug. Sears will publish a list of the stores that are closing on searsmedia.com when it is available....

Old Navy Black Friday Preview (and a coupon!)

Old Navy Black Friday Preview (and a coupon!)

I will be the first to tell you that Black Friday is shopping amateur hour (much like New Years Eve is for those who drink). That said, if you know what you are doing, you can rock this day and score all the best deals – leaving those neophytes in the cold. For instance,  Old Navy is blowing Black Friday out of the water with GOBBLEPALOOZA – a 3D shopping experience.

Horrible News: Syms and Filene’s Basement to Close All Stores, Ending a Beautiful Era

Horrible News: Syms and Filene’s Basement to Close All Stores, Ending a Beautiful Era

When I was a little girl, I hated Syms. My mother would drag me there – she loves the place, and I’d sit pouting in the corner as she tried on several dozen pairs of jeans, all with labels of mysterious colors, telling me about the magic of the bargain – and how this was an institution built on the thrill (and skill) of the hunt. Considering the line of work I went into, one may say this was a formative experience for me – maybe, maybe not. As I got older, I learned to appreciate Syms (AMAZING shoe section). But I never, ever, ceased to love Filene’s Basement. So imagine my heartbreak today when I learned that Filene’s Basement and its parent company, Syms Corp., have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.The stores are...

Oh No! Filene’s Basement is Closing Six More Stores This Year

Oh No! Filene’s Basement is Closing Six More Stores This Year

The long-struggling Filene’s Basement is still not in great shape, even two years after being taken over by Syms. This makes me sad – Filene’s Basement is a store I grew up budget shopping at! In fact, Boston.com reports that four Filene’s Basement stores are closing in Massachusetts alone. The good news is, these stores are all featuring fire sale discounts! Worth the price of a train ticket… Boston.com also reports that Filene’s Basement will also close two stores in Ohio and Maryland before the end of 2011. This will leave Filene’s with 20 stores nationwide. Hopefully still the NYC one. Not that I’m being selfish or anything about...

Weekend Clearance Sale at Peppermint Park: So Good, It’s Ridiculous

Weekend Clearance Sale at Peppermint Park: So Good, It’s Ridiculous

You know when you fall in love with a store, live on it for WEEKS, and then life happens and you drift apart? (The same could be said for romantic relationships, I agree – but then again, my greatest passion has long been with not paying retail.) Well, this morning I got an email from Peppermint Park reminding me of their clearance sale this weekend. Suddenly, it hit me – I LOVE that site. They have crazy deals, amazing finds…why haven’t I been visiting more often? Check out just a few of the finds I have made this morning that are blowing my mind (and giving me a whole new reason to atone this weekend..) Alexander McQueen Red Leather Jacket (YES, I know) Originally $4,000 (prohibitively priced, yes) – now marked down 92% to...
