    Not a real shocker based on some of their previous moves, the south store has got to be a multi million dollar loss before COVID and hasnít sold a thing since..

    Probably wouldn't have stayed afloat much longer; the covids just accelerated it.

    It's been a long, slow fall honestly - Like you said their store expansions, quality downhill, pricing up, medicore web presence, etc. It's a shame, as they were a home-grown company, had ethics overseas in their factories and originally had good quality shit at a reasonable price... RIP

    No one gets rich, the people they owe money to get less poor
