Babies "Я" Us, 254 Harbison Boulevard: April 2018   6 comments

Posted at 10:25 pm in closing








Nothing Held Back

Well, continuing the story from the Toys 'Я' Us post, this is the same thing but in a more advanced stage. The Babies "Я" Us closeout sale has been going since February and is now in the end stages, if this WLTX story is still current.

One thing I didn't mention in the Toys closing is that both business units share a common problem on top of everything else: The US, other Western nations and Japan are currently in a "baby bust" situation. That means even if they could regain their former appeal to the customer base, the customer base itself is shrinking, or as the Four Seasons once said Bye, Bye, Baby, Goodbye!

  6. @Larry - I think you're right! I've been trying to remember the name of that sporting goods store every time this location is mentioned. I think the original store there was Brendle's.
