Bye Bye Bombay

I hate that I missed this news when it broke back on October 15th but the store that helped me refurnish my apartment is going out of business in the U.S. Their website has already ceased operation except to help customers locate stores.

The Bombay Company will close all of its stores around the nation. I got an e-mail this morning touting a sale of 20 to 40 percent off of everything because 333 stores are closing. Bombay filed for bankruptcy on Sept. 24. Bombay apparently plans to keep its stores in Canada open.
The U.S. stores will stay open through the holiday season but then close for good. I guess I have to fork over the dough for the chairs for my pub table.
p.s., my blog now allows anonymous posts but now everyone must do the word verification. it’ll allow more people to comment but you’ll have to deal with the verification question. thanks for reading!
