Seven Retailers on the Brink in 2011

submitted on February 18, 2011 by DebsFreebies in "Stores / Merchants"
Borders isn't the only retailer hoping for a little financial relief these days. It seems there are others struggling, as well.

American Eagle Outfitters
American Apparel
BJ's Wholesale Club
Blockbuster
Borders
RadioShack

    I'm not surprised by most of these retailers.

      All our Blockbuster's recently closed with no signs being posted and now looks like all our local Border's stores are closing, fixtures & all.

    Nice list Debs. Alot of these places would probably do alot better if they would just drop prices during the hard times. A fast nickel is always better than a slow dime.

    It's a very sad situation, especially for stores we really like. Once the business is in decline, it's very complicated to recover. While big-discount promotions may please bargain-hunting customers, reducing prices (often below cost) to move product and generate revenue cannot keep the business open. When their operating expenses far exceed their income, they can no longer get a line of credit to pay for new merchandise.
