I knew from GW about L&T, but not about BB&B. I had heard a bout Circuit City and Sharper Image. Circuit City is selling on a major TV shopping network. They may be going to just that. Also heard Bombay may be coming back as online or under another name with online. hmmm - life as we know it sure is changing. Anyway, FYI - see below.

Subject: The Following Companies Just Filed for Bankruptcy

Hollywood Video
Levitz
Sharper Image
Performance Team Freight
Linens n Things
Circuit City
Bed, Bath and Beyond

If you have gift cards from the above list use them ASAP, they will
not be valid for much longer.

PASS THE WORD.

Wow gng, thanks for the info. I was just at BB&B and didn't use up all of my gift card!

RE: FYI - Bankruptcy

Oh no -- Linens 'n Things and BB&B are my favorite shops in the whole world! Just last night I picked out 2 or 3 comforter sets for my spare room. Here's a question for savier shoppers than me: Should I buy them now, or wait until their GOOB sales?

RE: FYI - Bankruptcy

Probably won't be any GOOB sales worth waiting for. Nowadays a company comes in to manage this kind of thing and THEY want money. Not sure that they are closing though. I love L&T and BB&B is a 2nd. There is one up the street so I think I've worn out the newness for BB&B.

"I think I've worn out the newness for BB&B." LOL. I don't shop there often, but I sure hope they don't close. I got a great Farberware non-stick 10" pan that's dishwasher-safe and oven proof for $10 off.

So declaring bankruptcy doesn't necessarily mean going out of business. I guess they could be bought out by another company, huh?
