List of stores closing nationwide: watch that Christmas shopping!

Well this news should make you feel great about our recession. Urgh.

Okay, here's the way to use this info for Christmas...DON'T buy anyone gift cards or anything you're thinking of as "returnable". DO go to these stores for clearance items and to use up your gift cards/store credits.

And above all when you think about all the layoffs and influx of competition into your job market...stay calm, breathe, have a martini.
