Because their 70-100% profit they put on the wholesale price to sell with is not accepted by customers any longer.
Ralphs sinks, too, and maybe other grocery chains.

Oh brother... It couldn't be that there is more competition for market share which includes online sales that typically do not charge sales tax.
People are always shifting brand loyalty... Markets shift with them.

Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

Experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism.

Quartering large bodies of armed and foreign agents among us:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

Taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

Declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

Transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

Despotic control of our Economic and Financial institutions.

Constrained our fellow Citizens to bear Arms against their Countrymen, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren.

Because worldwide money is hiding out in stocks. Generally, its a flight to quality. This pushes up many other stocks that shouldn't normally go up. As money moves from public to private the stocks could go significantly higher. Read some Martin Armstrong. He's somewhat of a crackpot but also a genius.

This ^^ I think they're waiting to get all their ducks in a row. Whatever or whoever has to be dealt with to bring this country to it's knees. When all that has been achieved.. they'll pull the economic rug out from underneath us and we'll fall on our face.

To create chaos too early would upset/interfere with their connived protocol.


Prayer could change things.. but most people would rather do things the hard way and cling to the illusion they have "control".


2 Chronicles 7:14 If My people who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray and SEEK MY FACE, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Things will continue getting worse until people are working a day for a loaf of bread. Then the great war will start. If you want to understand the timing and order of the end time events before the day of the Lord starts you need the read the 66th book of the Bible, chapter 6. 666 is the number of man and here is where the age of man is finished with 6 sixes:

Hess is closing their last refinery in Port Reading, N.J. and trying to sell all 19 of its East coast storage terminals. They're going to focus on exploration and production, mostly away from the U.S.

I have been a UPS driver for 16 years and I have seen the package volume go from industrial( nuts,bolts,etc.) to internet volume. Which includes everything you can possibly imagine! I deliver huge amounts of amazon.com and now gold silver and ammo. I do feel sorry and pray for these stores that go under but the times have changed and I am thankful I am driving a brown package truck delivering all this shit!!

Re: Why are all these stores closing nation wide, if the stock market is up and things are peachy?
Once upon a time we had very profitable companies making millionaires out of every day people. Those people took some of their profits and used it to buy and sell politicians. Soon they weren't making enough profit but had to continue buying and selling politicians so they moved their companies out of the states so they could keep their profit margin.

The government knew that this would hurt the economy but it encouraged the moves because it bolstered their pockets and took the power of money from other every day people.

Soon every day people were losing their jobs and not being able to pay for their houses. Many lost their houses and the media told every day people that is was because these people were living beyond their means.

Others lost their jobs and then their homes and many people went on food stamps. The government told these people that the only way they would be taken care of is if they gave their vote to the current government. So the people did.

Then the government created more rules and made it near impossible for people to start their own business. The government encouraged business outside of the states and discouraged business in the states.

The people had no money and stopped buying things. Stores closed all over the states. First small stores and then bigger ones. Soon the chains started closing their stores.

Landlords lost money as many stores pulled out on their leases. People lost jobs. Communities lost their mini malls, now empty spaces that became "parks" for the local teens.

Parents fearful of losing their homes worked two to three jobs at minimum wage not sleeping or watching their children.

Children grew up with TV and violent video games telling them how to behave and what to do.

Those that attended college found themselves in deep debt and no hope for any job as they were "over qualified".

Soon all were dependent on the government and the government claimed it was no longer going to support the people because no one was paying taxes. The poor didn't pay and the rich didn't pay and the middle class no longer existed.

The government opened camps, available to anyone that could no longer support themselves. These camps quickly filled up with homeless, jobless, hopeless people.

And they all lived unhappily ever after.

The dow is being "pumped", when high enough the in the know crowd will cash in(guess why its called "profit taking")
and the crash will be stupendous.
The web will get all the retail jobs
The illegals will get all of the construction jobs
A.I will get the "service" jobs
Americans will get the shit jobs
Europeans will choose to live on the dole
Aussies will work on Chinese plantations(coming soon to america!)

Re: Why are all these stores closing nation wide, if the stock market is up and things are peachy?
OK, I don't mean to sound anything like positive here, but could it be because of all the sales these brick and mortar stores are losing to their own internet sales? I never go to J.C. Penny stores or Sears, I order from them online now and have for years. Same with others.

It's cheaper to sell online (not that they would drop their Chinese Junk prices any for us "consumers").

All they need are warehouses and people to shove crap into boxes. Think of all the expenses they get rid of when they close a store and sell on the internet, the list is endless and the people that work for them can go to hell for all they care.

No doubt we're going down the shitter, but sometimes things are not ALL that they seem. I'd like to see some sales figures from these companies, not just how many brick and mortar stores they are closing and how many people they are laying off.

If people could remember past what they had for breakfast this morning, they might think back to 2008, when even before high frequency trading, many analysts were baffled why the Dow was climbing to new highs when economic signs seemed to be showing deterioration...

You're supposed to see that the DOW has reached 14,000 on your local news, see that your 401K or your IRA is doing okay, then go back to sleep...
