To the poster below, it's "THAN" follows these threads, not "THEN" follows. Also, anyone "WHO" reads, not anyone "YOU" reads. Should be "KNOW" more information not "NO" more. Spelling, buddy. Lastly, Brooklyn not Broklyn. Man, where do people Learn to type these DAYS?

And the wider audience can easily glean this information in a few Minutes, without the need for these nonsense articles that teach us nothing. Plus, his counts aren't even accurate. It's a waste of an article that teaches us literally nothing about Sears. And the author is so full of himself, praising his silly "prediction" that he doesn't even see the irony of his getting the counts wrong, LMAO!

Keep in mind these types of articles are written for a much wider general audience then follows these threads. Of course anyone you reads these threads everyday will no more information much faster. Most people don't have time or interest to read through these threads and debate whether Broklyn is actually a Kmart or a sears store.

@1lzl+1epRogyf Exactly! Reminded me of when the Judge Drain case was going on, regarding Sears bankruptcy. Every few Minutes, there was another online article stating something like "there are 2 Days, 12 Hours, 7 Minutes until all Sears close, unless an agreement is reached". Then 2 Hours later, "there are 2 Days, 10 Hours, 7 Minutes until all Sears close, unless an agreement is reached". Etc..

It was all so tiresome. I Knew from the start of that court hearing, that all Sears would NOT be closing. At least not then. We all Knew Eddie Lampert was going to be authorized by the judge to keep at least some Sears open. It was a foregone conclusion, but the media likes these sensational click-baity "countdown" type articles. Now the countdown is "how long until all Sears (or Kmarts) are closed". Hey, article authors, you'll find out along with the rest of us when it happens. No need to keep waxing poetic about it every single Day, unless you have some new, news, to offer. I have to keep reminding myself NOT to click on that garbage, because by doing so, I'm just feeding the pig.

These journalists have a quota to meet of writing articles that will get clicks. Nothing in the quota discusses the quality or quantity of actual news. If they thought posting "Hey World! 2+2=4" would get lots of clicks, you'd see it everywhere. Any to stand out from the competition, some whack-headed journalist would title it "Hey World! 4=2+2".

I always dislike these articles. Long on rhetoric, short on substance. They go on and on, meandering all over the place, but get nowhere. And, as mentioned below, his full line Sears counts are wrong. And there is never anything new in these articles that we're not already aware of. It's just gibberish. What a tool. Reminds me of my kids when they come Tell me this "novel discovery" that just read somewhere that birds can fly or that 2 plus 2 equals 4. It's OK, my kids are very young, so I can tolerate that silliness from little kids, but not from grown adult "journalists" like this Forbes guy.

Another long, stupid, meandering article, that is long on words, short on substance. He doesn't give us ANYTHING that we don't already Know. And his counts of full line Sears, are off, as mentioned below. These articles are so stupid and meaningless.

Prediction = Guess
Everybody knows how to guess.
Sometimes guesses are correct (although maybe not quite so in this case).

It matters not and is a poor reason to read Forbes.

I don't know where he gets his estimate of 23 full-line Sears stores from. I count 18.
