OptionC: apotheosis27: Sweet Tomatoes just went under too.

The health-conscious buffet business is worth about as much as WeWork right now.  Golden Corral, on the other hand... they'll probably be fine given their clientele


I think buffets are dead for good, but I can see a world where Golden Corral's typical restaurant layout transitions into several table-long troughs through which a slurry of Salisbury Steak and mashed potatoes are pumped, interrupted only by intervals of chocolate syrup and soft serve.

SVC_conservative: SVC_conservative: FrancoFile: Be interesting to see what liquidation prices on their stuff is going to be.  I could use a case of medium-quality wineglasses.

They're liquidation prices will be their normal sale prices. Bunch of overpriced tomfoolery.

Buy it at Ollies/Big Lots in a year or two.

I can't believe I used the wrong "their" there... I know it's not they are, I'm just a moron.


Psst. You're supposed to blame spell check.

Mrs. cfreak comments that hopefully there would be two separate troughs.

Growing up in a moribund Rust Belt city in the 80s and 90s, Pier 1 was a place of mystery and enchantment to me.

How good a retailer could it be if it couldn't even sell itself?
