    Brick and mortar is in a very weird place these days. I would have hoped that the one positive from the death of mom n pop would be less new buildings, less strip mall etc. Instead they keep building them - more and more and more and more..

    Often they just sit there empty. Though and empty store is just as useful to me as the majority of the businesses that reside in them. Do we really need an olive oil store or store for twins' clothing under 12? I'd rather see a field with grass and trees personally.

    Have you seen the list of businesses going into McEwen Place? Another bank, another fro-yo and yoga.
    Please kill me now.

    And that's exactly how urban slums are made. Instead of upkeep on existing buildings, we'd rather build all new ones and leave the old dilapidated. In 50 years, we'll be full of them.

    The largest building in my city which a bank owned, abandoned it to build another gigantic building. The old one is all mildewy and looks pretty bad and outdated. Still some offices in there, but why they don't raze it is a mystery to me. At least in the developed parts of Europe, they keep their old structures in decent repair.

    I think I may have been in Radio Shack just once.

    I view Guitar Center the same way. I will go in to get a feel for something or hear it, then go online and order it.

    That's exactly what happened to Circuit City, CompUSA, etc., and now it's happening to Best Buy as well. Those stores are/were just free showrooms for Amazon.

    Exactly, I only use Best Buy to buy movies, anything else just gets a test drive.

    Haven't been shopping for movies there in years. But their prices used to be outrageous. True story: I once saw Silence of the Lambs on Blu-ray there for 39.99. At that same time it was 9.99 on Amazon. :rolleyes:

    DVDs that get bought tend to get watched once then collect dust. The only DVDs worth paying for are the tick cartoon series, married with children, and most Arnold Schwarzenegger movies.

    I think I've only stepped into a Radio Shack once in my entire life... and it was when I was like 12 in the Opry Mills Mall.

    Place sucks.

    Same with Electronic Express. How the hell are those guys in business? I used to work at Circuit City in high school... no idea how they went under and Electronic Express didn't.
