"Mistake. So that happens a lot. I don't know how much longer we're going to see a Sears. I don't even know if we still have a Sears in the Albany mall. Sears, Albany, Georgia. Let's take a look. All right, January fifth, twenty seventeen. Here we are the Albany herald states Sears in Albany closing. Albany k. mart not on the closure list. Bring that up real quick and just take a look. So it says Sears at Albany mall will close by the end of March. So if that's the case in this was January fifth, twenty. Seventeen. Yeah. It's been gone for a year over year almost two years now year and a half. Definitely. And this sad. That is very sad. But. I've got a point out. Something is sad is this is I mean my heart goes out to to the employee's. Okay, I get that. I have been at the receiving end of budget cuts. I have been at the receiving end of just get the hell out. I don't need you here anymore because you cost too much kind of scenario, and it's no fun. It's it's definitely no fun, and it's definitely no fun. You don't get any type severance package. One of those instances I did the other instance did not. So my heart goes out to those employee's that lose their jobs when when stores like Sears stores and k. mart stores closed down. But I gotta ask you a question. How many of you. And this may be a demographic question, but how many of you. Have actually stepped foot in a Sears store in the last two years. Think about it. How many of you have stepped foot in a Sears store. In the last two years now, I don't mean if if you went there the Sears auto center or whatever you had your your tires rotated or you got new tires or whatever. Okay, I'll give you that. I'll let that be a pass. You get a pass on that. Okay. But how many of you have actually stepped into a Sears store in the last two years to actually buy something. Instead of buying online, because I'm here to tell you if I've got unless it's something that I desperately desperately desperately need. I got to have it today. I am not going to a physical brick and mortar store. Not gonna do it. Not win. I can. Sit there either on my phone using an app. Which I had a friend of mine that. This was four years ago would order stuff on his phone Amazon app. And I thought that was so ridiculous because for me that point that apps just sucked. They absolutely sucked. Fun. Now in twenty eighteen. That I can do a quick look up on something on Amazon. It's what I need got the money or at least got the credit bam. Bob's your own cool. It's bolt a never have to go sit at my PC. So I've noticed that about myself over the last twelve to eighteen months more and more. I will actually use my phone to order stuff like that. But if I have if I don't need something. Right now, I'm not going to step foot in a brick and mortar store. Just not gonna do it. I'm going to buy it on Amazon or here lately we've been doing the online shopping and pick up of groceries at our local WalMart marketplace where I think we've done it for about a month. Now this is, I think, today was our fourth time. And using their app. I find that this is so easy that during the week we used to keep a list and we still do. Because I'm my wife and I are really the only ones using the app. But if I, I recognize that I'm running out of something. I'll quickly look it up on my phone. I had it to the grocery list at finalize that list usually around seven or eight o'clock Wednesday night. We schedule a pickup for ten o'clock Thursday morning, and so far we've been notified about nine forty five every time that our groceries are ready, and we click the check in button that we're on our way we pull up and within five minutes, there's a very, very nice employees. Her name is Queen. She's been the one bringing our groceries out every single time. You cannot ask for a brighter person. A happier per customer service is just pouring out of this woman. And so our experience with this has been nothing but positive. I'm not saying that we won't have a negative. As some point. But so far it's been great. I don't step foot in the marketplace. Which the only reason why I was going to a marketplace to begin with was usually to get cathode. Now I don't even have to do that. I just done there. She brings it out. We do go to Publix because there are a few things that marketplace doesn't carry. And then we got kind of a specialty meat in poultry type store, cardis foods that we have to go in and get like chicken breasts and things like that. But otherwise Donovan does not go into a brick and mortar story. If he doesn't have to in that is what's killing these retail outlets every single thing. And I'm not. I'm not trying to be happier Bollock here, but I know I'm running the risk of being somewhat hyperbolic every single thing that you can buy from Sears. You practically can buy online from Amazon. Did you know that you can buy prefabbed pre fabricated homes through Amazon. Yeah. Look it up and pre fabricated homes, Amazon dot com. There you go prefab homes, Amazon dot com. Now there. The books you're gonna make me eat my words, aren't you? Gonna make me eat my words. Now. Actually seen this. Not just the books. I've actually seen this. Oh, well. That's actually something though that that I'm Assan Sears have in common in their early days. That's actually one of the things I did is they sold. They sold homes. They sold homes. So. Oh yeah. You could actually get a Mods forty foot, tiny home here you go available from the end. Of course. What it looks like is. The trailer that would be on a tractor trailer and they modified it into a home. I've seen some of the insides of these things that they're, it's amazing what they can do point is there's practically nothing that you can get it Sears that you can't get an Amazon. So. It's very telling you have retail Alice, like Sears going the way of the dodo bird. Now going on our list of other retail outlets that could potentially be gone in the next couple years Barnes and noble. Barnes and noble. One of the, I think the largest brick and mortar bookstore left. In the United States have not the planet, but definitely in the United States. And of course lie is that you had borders. Amazon pretty much ate their lunch and they're pretty much. I mean, if it weren't for the fact that Barnes and nobles, I, it's not nobles. It's Barnes and noble, get right on. If it weren't for the fact that they were already so huge to begin with, they probably already be out, but they're they're emerging cash flow right now. They're cute to twenty eighteen numbers their overall sales dropped by seven point, nine percent. They lost thirty point one million dollars which is up from twenty point four million the previous year. This trend. This trend started in twenty thirteen. And why. Why is it? Well, e books. Lot of folks get their content. They're reading material. Via e books. They got an e reader, whether it's a kindle, weather's the kindle app on their phone, whether it some other type of raider. But by and large, Amazon is the largest e book seller on on the planet. So the kind of make sense. But we, you know, we're all. We're all consuming our content a little differently now. I mean, we have, we have all of these options. We've got it flicks. We've got Hulu. We've got CBS Alexis Disney's coming out with their own damn streaming service. You got DC universe coming out with their own streaming service where they're going to have titans in some other content. We've got all of this stuff here for entertainment. Nobody. Again, nobody's in quotes wants to read a book. Now. I've actually as I've gotten older gotten to the point where I do like the physical book, I do own a lot of e books. I own a lot of e books that I've never read. But as I get older, it's almost like a little bit of nostalgia that kicking in, and I want that that tangible feel of that paper. And I don't know. Maybe I'm thinking fifty years from now. There's going to be any such thing as books and all of these things are going to be collector's items. Who who knows. Another one is route twenty one. Some of these have never even heard of route twenty one. They were a, our eighteen retailer privately owned and they filed for bankruptcy and may of twenty seventeen. They're still going. None west. They target women shoes in excess res j. crew. They're closing thirty nine of their five hundred seventy five stores. But they've been. They've been described as curiously blank and directionless. Bon ton stores. I've never heard of them amber Crombie in Fitch that would have heard of they are teen targeted clothier and they've been struggling for years as expensive labels have fallen out of fashion. Well, let's stop and think about it. Who became. That demographic who became that that target market millennials, millennials by and large are minimalists. They don't buy a lot of stuff. In the things that they do by they typically make long hard informed decisions and they go, they do go after quality products. But that doesn't mean that they're going to spend one hundred fifty dollars sweat shirt or some nonsense like that.
