    Please stop. How many chains can Sears screw up at once.

    I thought the same thing. Instant suck.

    Can RH go back to selling more of its kitschy-gadgety stuff? They (like Gap and Banana Republic) used to carry much more cool stuff than bland furniture/clothing.

    @headon:

    I dunno…K-mart was already screwed up. They did start selling Craftsman tools, though, which is a plus.

    OTOH, I could do without the credit card pitch every time I go to the checkout.

    How could this possibly screw up Restoration Hardware anymore?

    @Mechugena: Since when does Restoration Hardware sell clothes?

    @Major-General: How is Restoration Hardware screwed up? It’s been a while since I’ve been in there because they’re too expensive for my tastes, but I didn’t realize they weren’t doing well.
