Linens N not much else
London, ON, February 2009 [Click to embiggen]
I'm wrestling with some major tech issues this week, including a complete and utter meltdown of my BlackBerry. So if this seems a bit terse, that's why.
I guess "abandoned" is an appropriate theme (see here for more Thematic goodness) when everything in our house seems to be failing and getting tossed around the same time. Despite the frightening number of zeroes on the price tags of the replacement items (so far, we're dealing with the furnace/aircon/water heater, washer/dryer, vacuum and 'Berry, and we're taking bets on what's next) I admit it's a bit cathartic to get rid of the old. If anything, the house hasn't been this devoid of stuff in years. A good thing all around.
Sadly, we won't be shopping at this particular store. I featured it over the winter, and thought a wider perspective might contribute more reflective feelings of abandonment to this week's theme. Enjoy.
Your turn: Ever wonder what happens to the retail community - employees, customers, suppliers etc. - when a large store like this closes. From where I sit, it's almost like the removal of gravity. What say you?
