Linens 'N Things Update

If you shop there, now might be the time to look for some good deals as ALL stores will be closing in mid-December, including those in Canada, since they failed to find any backers after the first round of closings. The company has been bought out by a liquidation firm.

I feel bad for the employees who will be losing their jobs right before Christmas.
Figures, eh?

Be careful about what you purchase there. When the company was sold, the prices were frozen at the current market value, not the value listed on the items. I purchased four items that were marked $4 but rang up for $15 and did not realize it until I got home. Since it is a liquidation, ALL sales are final.

Hey, Sabrina,
thanks for dropping in.
Thank you for the heads-up. I don't shop there, never have even been in the store. I couldn't afford anything they sell at that place.
I watch the registers like a hawk at every store when they ring things up (regardless of where I'm shopping), and almost every time, I catch something that comes up wrong! Maybe it helps that I know exactly how much I have to spend, down to the penny, before I get up there and have to add it up as I shop? I'm a bit OCD about it. Then again, maybe it's just because I'm not too trusting. lol.
