Re: Most retailers are 'self-liquidating' - Want to know why? Come inside...
Were i live in my town they built a massive supermarket in 2002

At that peak time there was a large section of DVDS, Videos, games for playstation etc, and also a large section for laptops and tvs.

At that boom time people used to do a months shopping on pay day, and trolleys were filled.

Not so much the case now as customers tend to just get a few things, and shop more regularly for special offers.

I have thought for a long time they would close it and move to a smaller premises, especially as this depression hits, people are just gonna get bits and shop around for bargains.

Also because it is a large store stealing was rife, and the heating and lighting as got to cost a lot.

Since the lockdown, items just look spaced out, either they haven't got the stock, or it would just take thousands upon thousands of pounds to fill it, with stuff that may not sell or as a shelf life.

That's my take on it x

Yes. We have some big Meijer stores and they hardly have any customers and the shelves are massively spaced out and not full like they used to be.

I wonder how places like this can continue with no one buying like before?

Maybe they have online ordering keeping them afloat? We'll know by the end of this year.

Yup. Brand new Ross in our town was nearly empty after first shutdown. Also I noticed the one year old Hobby Lobby here has ALL their seasonal shit out, from every season. I was guessing they’re also going to close down. There go some jobs... that locals didn’t have for very long. And I forgot, our JCP is going out of business too. Before these stores came all there was were thrift stores. So back to square one... thrift stores + Walmart.

Um, not to be rude, but you didn't tell us any intel or anything, I mean it's obvious they're self-liquidating stores like TJ Maxx, Ross, etc, very obvious.

I mean if you've got some specific intel as to why they are expecting a short window, etc, please fill us in.

That's why I said in a few of my posts that the best thing to do right now is to buy things, everyday things you need, toaster, microwave, pots/pans, clothes, even buy double, because I see a lot of stuff disappearing.

Re: Most retailers are 'self-liquidating' - Want to know why? Come inside...
Most retailers are preparing to go out of business. They are self-liquidating because cost and they know they only have a narrow "re-open" window to do it.

And...

Because the big liquidator companies are overwhelmed and can't move the product to other retailers because there are no other retailers now.

They can't even load it and ship it to dump it in Africa or South America.

So this is why.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 72337722


That's exactly what is happening at Ross. I was in one yesterday to buy some sheets and at least half the shelves were empty. All the shelves for sheets were empty.

So I went to another Ross. Same scene. With nothing even on the shelves to sell, how can they survive even another month?

In all seriousness, if anyone has little ones that have their hearts set on a particular toy, doll, etc. between now and Christmas the time to start tracking it down is NOW.

You will not, in all likelihood, find it anywhere including online between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

naw, trump has put tariffs on china and all the pathways to china. The large corporations set their whole merchandise scheme to but dirt cheap from china and sell inflated to you. They thought Hillary would win and they'd have the monopoly are ready set up.

but Trump won and is closing their lines.
they are going out of business because they owe to the system that is being cut off. it's a debt slave system and it couldn't support itself.

as we move to a new system of gold backed currency with value they will no longer be able to gouge the consumer and all their assets are tied up in worthless paper currency backed by nothing.

this is a tale of get off the pot and they didn't.

if you want to win, start producing/buying in America and reselling - it won't be as profitable but it will be steady.

that's is the new system - steady.

Re: Most retailers are 'self-liquidating' - Want to know why? Come inside...
Liquidators can't unload what they have. So retailers have to do it themselves.

They really do have a narrow window.

All I would have needed to make the decision to close for good would be seeing Trump at one of his circus pressers, especially the one were he exploded at rage when the governor of Georgia re-opened the economy.

Trump's body language at the covid pressers is also very telling. Watch one with the sound off where he does his hand slash and cross move when talks about shutting down the economy. He's doing an upside down cross. Like a satanic blessing. He he may be doing it unconsciously but it looks bad with no sound.

He's oblivious to the pain and destruction he cause with his emergency order, then runs like a coward for the order he gave that's still wrecking havoc world wide.

He's spoiling for wars yet he has Ford and GM remaining plants in the US building ventilators instead of cars. It would be comically foolish if millions of Americans weren't going to die from starvation, homelessness, suicide, disease caused by him keeping hospitals shut down.

His actions and evil aren't apart of the actions and evil of Cuomo, Whitmer and Inslee. They are coordinated with theirs.

All the evil politicians he whines about who are "out to get him" are the ones he spends his days on the phone with. Kissing their ass.

There's no future for any type business in the US. The Germans are right. The US won't be part of NATO because there won't a US soon. Not one with an economy.

The President has GOT to start antibody testing individuals - anybody wants one can have one kind of thing. I know there are probably tens of millions who have antibodies. Give them green cards to pin on their clothing and let them go back to work, allow them not to mask up, and they don't have to social distance. The country is going to go belly up. Plus, it's not fair to make people who have already had it to wear masks and social distance - that's just preposterous.

The Burlington Coat Factory at 100 Oaks in Nashville is 95% empty. It was a shock, it looked like a store in a third world country. Obviously they intend to close it. However it's not due to lack of business, everyone else is booming. Rainbow Shops, the largest store at Opry Mills, looked like it intends to either scale way back or shut. They are the largest clothing store at that mall, it's huge, but no inventory. It's a real taste of what Cuba or anywhere is like where you do without.

Saks Off Fifth shut at Opry Mills also.

It's obvious the chain from China is broken, and we will have to wait a year or so for the supply to reboot from other countries and new suppliers. Vietnam makes the best textiles, Brazil makes great shoes and bags, so many countries we already import from that are better and make better stuff. We don't need their crap stuff anymore.

Along this train of thought, I was wondering if many retailers are doing ordering for Christmas/Holiday shopping time (so that they will receive inventory in August-October.

It would be more telling to see what retail ordering is looking like.

Anyone know where to find this information?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78614390


I supply a top 5 retailer...and there's no issue with them bringing in their Holiday gifts from China. None. All the POs were issued earlier in the year...

Now who knows...there may be supply chain issues as this product comes over to port if another serious outbreak occurs. There's also the thought that if another outbreak happens, other more important SKUs may take the prime floorspace some of the gift is placed....

There is no way I believe Trump is not conspiring with China though. NO FUCKING WAY.

FOR INSTANCE, he says he hates Schiff, why would he, Schiff got him out of that Epstein MOSSAD jam with the fake Impeachment charade, didn't he? Seems to me Israel loves Trump a hell of a lot more than americans do, hard to imagine jws wouldn't.

The "impeachment" we all were told before it started would never result in a conviction because the Republicans in the senate were in lock step? That "impeachment".

China plans on replacing american public schools with a couple trillion dollars worth of laptops, servers and AI to teach the kids. Which is why Trump is installing 5G at the expense of making sure the military has a viable supply chain.

Mass firing of teachers and liquidation of public schools is coming the the next few months. Their pensions will also be eliminated. Perhaps Trump can get BLM to call them all racists and get them defunded.
