Goody's Family Clothing is closing its stores. The holiday boom wasn't enough to keep it going even after they shutdown many stores in the fall.
It makes me sad. I hadn't shopped there in years but our town had just opened a brand new store. It seemed so odd that as other stores were shutting down, we got a new one. So, it's the first failed store of our new shopping development. A new development that I fear will be pretty bare with the economy being what it is.
Goody's seemed much nicer when I was younger. My mom and I spent many great Saturdays at Goody's looking for deals. The quality started to slid in later years and I stopped shopping there. Mom complained she could never find anything anymore. I guess it just slowly done itself in.
My neighbor worked for a car dealership that just shut down and his wife worked at Goody's. I feel badly for them.
I hope 09 begins to shine for everyone.
