Demise of Linens & Things

Like the collapse of Woolworths in the UK, the closure of Linens & Things here in Canada is going to leave an empty big-box store in most Malls around Canada and the US.

This week we visited the store at Park Royal in its last few days. Absolutely everything was for sale including the furniture and equipment. Indeed the shopping carts & baskets had already been sold but you didn't really need them since there was hardly anything else to buy.......just a handful of odd items.

Oh well, it's a shame for the staff & the malls that it affects, however we do still have Home Sense and Home Outfitters which are lets face it, absolutely identical !
