Poor People

So it seems that Sharper Image is filing bankruptcy..
and all those gifts cards????

Quote:
http:The Sharper Image announced late last month that it was suspending the acceptance of gift cards, at least temporarily. It urged shoppers to check the company Web site later this month for an update. That is typical of businesses that reorganize under Chapter 11 bankruptcy, which treats gift cards as a loan to the company, not as cash.
Bankruptcy makes gift cards worthless - Yahoo! News

So if you got one.... you may want to head to Brookstones!! LOL

Quote:
Sharper Image's rival, Merrimack, N.H.-based Brookstone Inc., is capitalizing on the situation. It announced last week that it would exchange Sharper Image gift cards for 25 percent off any purchase, no matter the amount of the gift card or the cost of the item.
Or if you just have one with a few bucks left on it!!!

Makes me wonder when my card from Olive Garden is gonna belly up!!

If you have sex with a prostitute against her will, is it considered rape or shoplifting?

All the sharper image shops out here closed down ages ago.
I didn't know they still existed.

Used to get my gel insoles from there. Those were probably the best things in that shop anyway. Most of the stuff was too expensive for what it was.
