Retail apocalypse? The slow death of brick-and-mortar
stores across America revealed

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 3/25/2023 3:19:38 PM

Brick-and-mortar stores throughout the country appear to be meeting a sorry fate as huge retailers seek to streamline their operations. Over the last month, several prominent retailers, including Walmart, Amazon, CVS, Foot Locker and Macy's, have announced a swathe of store closures. In total, nearly 850 stores are set to shut by the end of 2023, with many forced into desperate cost-cutting measures amid rampant inflation and declining bottom lines.

It's pretty difficult to shoplift from online stores!! No physical locations, no boosting or looting. No smash and grabs.

1 and 2 make solid points, and may I add another: people have gotten extremely lazy. It takes effort to get to drive, park walk to the shop, move through the aisles, stand in checkout lines, then get back home. A hamburger and fries can be delivered to your front porch at 11p.m. and you barely need to move a muscle.

it's not just brick and mortar. It's imagination. Consider Sear & Roebuck. Once they owned the retail business all across America. Could have been what Amazon is today. Other retailers are going the same way. Are you in the buggy whip business or the vehicle accelerator business?

Problem is, #1, most of the shoplifting will turn into porch piracy, especially in certain demographics.

None of the businesses I used to regularly shop at have much inventory now so I order on line. (Therefore I don't do as much impulse-buying.) Never thought this would happen. Biden must be some kind of wizard!

The stores themselves have become lazy. The clothes consist of cheap hideous rags from China, the merchandising is nonexistent and the cashiers wear pajama pants and hoodies. The stores deserve to be obliterated they[re asking fpr it.

There was a time when driving to the mall, window shopping, walking a bit and then getting something to eat was enjoyable especially around the holidays. But with thieves seemingly everywhere I backed off going to a large mall. Still visit smaller stripmalls where I feel safer. Easier to park. Try to park as close to the mail entrance as possible. And I have discovered the joy of online shopping. I am older and don't want to be out in the dark or bad weather. Remember when Sears and Penneys were the cornerstone of any mall. I think that malls will go the wayside of the local theater. Better choices in a more comfortable environment. Home, with a bathroom, no crowd, no parking, and food & drink readily available.

I can find an obscure replacement part for a home aquarium filter on Amazon that costs 27 cents and is on my doorstep come Wednesday. That's cheaper than shoplifting.

During the Great Shutdown, millions of adults received free money from the government, but could only spend most of it online. The results have been disastrous on many levels. First, employers are forced by the newly spoiled labor pool to permit working remotely at least several days a week, if not entirely in some job categories. Employees working from isolated locations no longer have the close physical contact necessary for team building and collaboration. Meanwhile, many office buildings are half-filled with corporate tenants now paying for space they no longer need. Not surprisingly, there also has been an explosion in obesity as employees don't even need to walk down the hall for a meeting, and the kitchen refrigerator is close at hand. Online retail shopping is also more convenient, so no more calories burned walking through a mall or from and to the parking lot. Employees working remotely have much less need for a dry cleaner, new work apparel, and haircuts. Student study habits and performance tests have cratered. Inflation has skyrocketed as a result of the reckless spending to pay people and businesses that should have been earning, rather than just receiving, income. With apologies to Simon and Garfunkel: Sitting on a sofa on a Sunday afternoon Going to the candidates debate Laugh about it, shout about it When you've got to choose Every way you look at this, you lose

So much for building the U.S. economy on a "Service Economy," as they convinced President Ronald Reagan in his second term. America needs to be building massive numbers of Middle Class Jobs, not retail shopping experiences, whether in shopping malls, brick-n-mortar stores, or a few on-line/drop-ship leviathans.

It seems to me that Bed Bath & Beyond was doing well until they went 'woke' and kicked out Mike Lindell's 'My Pillow' line of products. Not soon after, I started reading about declining sales and the company in trouble. The only other store chain mentioned that I am familiar with is Wal-Mart. In my neck of the woods, Wal-Mart has full parking lots when everyone else is languishing or empty. I would l wager that the stores they are closing either have specific reasons that they are doing poorly, or are located in areas where Urban Thug Culture has displaced traditional American culture.

Personally I hate online shopping. I like to see and feel what I am buying. I don’t like ordering something online and having to send it back. The department stores I usually frequent don’t have a good selection. Their buyers must be insane. The clothes not only look cheap they are ugly. While shopping online is convenient, the returns are frustrating.

I agree #20, i want to see many many things in person. Like clothes and bedding and furniture and dishes … Shampoo? I can order that. I miss the way things were. I agree it’s great to be able to so easily research products and obtain them so easily, rather than be restricted to what local stores offer or have to travel far and wide to find what you really want. But I miss full movie theaters and I miss full shopping malls. I recently purchased thru amazon for the first time since Jan 6 and that was only because it was required for a baby shower i am helping with. I have successfully boycotted them, because of what they did, and i will continue to. Used to buy a ton of books there but i have found alternative sites; I pay a little more and i don’t care. They crossed a line.

Lest we forget, there are plenty of Soros DA's who won't prosecute crime because of economic oppression of minorities or "it takes too much money to go to trial" on theives, even for amounts that are up to a felony in monetary value.... Even upscale retailers are finding it hard to stay in business. I recently bought a new white dress shirt which was marked down from $49 to $18 and there were a gaggle of lazy employees having conversation with each other who could have actually sorted the shirts by sizes and I had to get someone to stop their conversations with the others in order to by it. Meanwhile, there were racks and racks of clothes that were too expensive and too many smaller sizes that were left on racks while real people sizes were sold out.

I am in my 60's. It wasn't that long ago when K-mart and Sears were two of the biggest retailers in the world. The last I heard, there were 3 K-Mart stores left, and Sears is pretty much just limited to on-line sales (with nowhere near the sales of Wal-Mart's on-line sales or Amazon's sales). Now both are just dying ghosts of their once all-powerful selves. They didn't read the changing trends and make the necessary changes to keep up. We may very well be saying the same things about JC Penney and Wal-Mart in another decade or so. Maybe even Amazon will be fading away if somebody comes up with something better. Add to that the rampant shoplifting and outright theft with no consequences in large lie-beral Demon-Rat run cities who coddle criminals and destroy businesses, and "brick and mortar" stores may soon be a fond memory for so many of us. Globe, Joske's, Montgomery Ward, Blockbuster Video (except for that one store in Bend, OR), Borders Books, Builder's Square, Circuit City, CompUSA, Eckerd's Drugstores, KB Toys, Mervyn's, Payless Shoes, Pier 1 Imports, Tower Records, Woolworth's, Woolco, and those are just the ones here in Texas that I remember shopping at regularly that just aren't there anymore.

I've believed for several decades that a shrinking "supplier base" is perfectly consistent with End Times prophecy. Throw digital currency (rumored to be coming soon) into the mix, and your freedom to purchase is essentially gone.

Minnesota lawmakers on Thursday advanced legislation that would establish the state as a "trans refuge" for children who are seeking transgender medical procedures but who may be denied "gender-affirming care" in other states. In a party-line 68-62 vote, the Minnesota House passed HF 146, which had been introduced by Rep. Leigh Finke of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party. Finke is the state's first transgender lawmaker. Democrats supporting the bill say the legislation will protect transgender people, their families and healthcare providers from facing legal repercussions for traveling to Minnesota to obtain cross-sex hormone prescriptions or sex-change procedures.
