Surprised Salem, NH is not on that list.  Hopeless for decades, empty for years.

 

Last time I was in there (on the way to another store), I passed by a table of nice shirts with a sign which read 'marked down' -- no prices, no percentages.  When I finally found a cashier, the price was outstanding.  I got a bunch and went to the checkout.  There were two behind me in line (the cashier may have been the only other person in the building).  As she processed my order, one of the two asked me where I found the shirts then both left to plunder the table.  That table was right at the entrance to the mall.  Imagine if one of the employees had thought to post a sign with price information?  If Amazon did not post prices, I would not shop there either!

I'm really surprised there are many left. NOWHERE that I frequent has a Kmart or a Sears left. It's a shame, used to shop at both of them a lot.

I wish they'd just get it over with and close 'em all...it's inevitable. Why keep holding on... :confused:

Mine isn't on this list, but the billboards are all over touting its closing soon.  I'm not completely sorry because the store has been a dump for years.  But I am sorry that the local mall has lost its second of 3 anchor stores and is slowly becoming a mini-clinic instead of a shopping mall.

I think it's a great idea to repurpose these buildings as service areas specializing in things difficult to do over the internet.
