It's currently trading at a skin for a skin.

I see no long-term strategy for The Bay. I'd stay away from them.

After dumping off the Zellers chain into oblivion, why would anyone want to trust our former Canadian darling HBC to have any chance against Wal-Mart and Target? They're just delaying the inevitable collapse of this antiquated company.

I think the only thing I've bought from the bay in the last 20 years was a Vancouver Olympics jacket. Oh, and the mittens.

But once the last of the Greatest Generation passes away, HBC is toast.

Not a repeat - now they can take advantage of the Northwest Passage.

Just about the time of year to bring this bad boy out.

In other news, I seek funding for carrying on an undertaking of great advantage but no one to know what it is.

Puh! I'm taking my business to Eatons! What?

Fixed.

Run...do NOT walk, from this deal.

Oh, The Hudson's Bay Company runs ships in the summertime,
And they stock the stores of the Labrador
and they stock them full for the wintertime,
Bayrupert set sail from the Clyde outbound for Newfoundland,
But to get to Hopedale don't you know - you'd be better off by land.

They've got no charts on the Labrador - all you hear is: "Stay away",
For there's rocks and ice, dark as hell at night
from Jack Lane's Way to Broomfield Bay,
They've got wooden ships, steamer ships, with frozen men below,
They've got mountains right beneath your keel, so for God's sake don't you go.

She had shoes and coffee, boots and tea, butter, pipes and bridles,
Sleeping bags and saddle soap and she brought a gross of bibles,
She was open wide, steaming through the tide when she hit them granite rocks,
Both her ends went down with a mighty sound and the middle opened up.

It was Sunday when that ship went down, the town was all to prayer,
No missionary minister with the words of God could have kept them there,
"All's lost! All's lost!" The captain cried; "I'll never sail the more!",
"All's found, all's found!"; yelled the Innu as they ran down to the shore.

When the tide came in those goods did too, they saved them from the sea,
Saying: "It's great to be doing business with the Hudson's Bay Company",
"We've got shoes and coffee, boots and tea, butter, pipes and bridles,
We've got sleeping bags and saddle soap - but to hell with all them bibles!"

Time to invest in the Dutch East India Company.

I'm planning to buy some shares as soon as I can sell my tulip futures.

The Bay has actually been doing quite well in recent years, especially when compared to competitors such as Sears.

Came for the blanket, left actually surprised that someone posted one.

I shop at The Bay sometimes. Those saying Wal-Mart is going to bring it down are fools. Completely different clientele. The Bay sells upmarket goods. The people shopping at Wal-Wart aren't spending $25 for a bath towel, $120 for a pair of jeans or $250 for a comforter.

Plus I think the bay has the wedding gift registry market pretty much locked up. I mean I don't go in there super often, but everytime i do there is at least one couple with the scanning gun loading up their list. I don't think I have ever heard of an actual person going to walmart for a gift registry.
