You wanted "Build Back Better"? . . .
Well...Here it is!!!

Walmart is closing 23 stores in 8 states (all blue).
Target is closing 9 stores in 4 states (all blue).
Walgreens is closing 900 stores (mostly blue)
Bed bath and beyond is closing its remaining 360 stores.
Lowes has closed 50 stores.
Macy's is closing 150 stores (mainly blue)
Starbucks has closed 61 stores (mainly blue)
Home Depot is closing 15 stores
Dollar Tree is closing 1,000 stores
Foot Locker is closing 400 stores
Gap is closing 350 stores
Party City is closing 24 stores (mainly blue)
Big Lots is closing stores in Cali and Colorado
Burger King is closing 400 stores
Best Buy is closing 20 stores
Boston Market is closing 27 stores
Kmart only has 2 stores left
Sears closed all but 22 stores
Regal Cinemas has closed 429 movie theaters
Kroger grocery chain has closed 413 stores
US Bank is closing 23 branches
Wells Fargo is closing over 60 branches
Capital One is closing 50 branches
Bank of America is closing 20 branches
All because the economy is so wonderful.

_ _ _ _ _ CALCULATIONS _ _ _ _ _ _
THERE ARE MORE THAN 3,800 RETAIL OUTLETS accounted for on the closed list. Numbers for Sears, Big Lots (2 States) and KMart are unknown but we can assume no less than 50 stores each, or 200 more retail outlets. Total known closings: 4,000+

Being VERY conservative, we can calculate only 10 jobs lost for many closings; Target, Macy's, Sears, Walmart, Kroger, and similar closings will leave many more unemployed, perhaps "only" 50 at each location.

Therefore these closings may leave more than 2,000 places with 10 employees, plus about 2,000 places with 50 employees, or at least 120,000+ unemployed, impacting about half a million American men, women, and children in the families of those left without work. But this is only a very rough calculation: the true figure may be fewer, but it's probably much greater.

The cost of this enforced unemployment can't be calculated without extensive research, but imagine the taxes we all pay to give these unfortunate citizens food stamps, unemployment insurance, medical care, child benefits, and so many other necessary services, coupled with the loss of tax revenue from their lack of paying jobs.

We can easily arrange for four more years of the same - only worse. V**e Democrat in November.

This is caused by Amazon and online shopping, not Biden. Unemployment is at its lowest in decades.

Bulls**t, this is caused by l**ting. I've seen the videos of african americans complaining about stores in their communities closing down because of l**ting and safty. Go look them up.

Kevyn is incapable of rational thought.
He appears to be one of these people do not believe crap stinks even when their noses have been rubbed in it.

Amazon and C***D making people realize they actually could buy most everything they need online - and often, less expensively than in small local stores. 朮

An entire baked good discount outlet chain in upstate NY / Vermont is closing all its stores.

Why? Not because they are being l**ted.

"The bakery outlet stores may have abruptly closed but the baked goods Freihofer's has been known for for the past 140 years will still be available at your local grocery store..."

AT TWICE THE PRICE THE OUTLET STORES CHARGED FOR THEIR NEAR EXPIRATION DATE STOCK.

People in all these communities depended on these stores. They could get decent bread - even if it was on the dry or slightly stale side - to feed their families for sometimes as little as $1 a loaf.
The same bread for which a retail grocer or Walmart is charging 2 to 3 times as much.

That`s a crock!! Many of these stores have stated they are closing because of all the shop lifting and theft right along with the unsafe areas surroundings of their stores!!

THAT is not why these chain stores are closing!! It is because of shop lifting in the areas they are located in which are mostly blue states and that is sad because not everybody has a computer to do your on-line shopping!
