Probably from all the crap my GF has bought in the past year.

If you put $1000 in Pier 1 at 0.11 in 2008 and sold yesterday you would have made $175,000.

A time machine seems like a great investment.

I can't believe Pier 1 is still around. They sell overpriced crap that is too ugly for Pottery Barn.

Their sales are up because people are tired of trying to find their way out of IKEA

Really? I find Pier 1 isn't expensive at all. PB is firmly in the middle of ripoff territory.

They are building their first store here in Fairbanks right now. I figure they can't be doing too badly if they are trying to expand into this market. Haven't been in one in decades so will probably go check them out when they open.

Cost Plus was founded by Charles Tandy (the guy who owned Radio Shack) and Luther Henderson, in 1966 Cost Plus was sold to a group of investors and the name was changed to Pier 1
