I take it you dont like value city? If thats the case, your not alone. I never got myself to like that place. It smells funky. I'm glad ours isnt closing, but I wont ever go in there, unless I'm dragged.

I guess Lowery and the council is to blame for that too?

nope DSW is seling the Value city stores to Burlington coat factory,I believe it is the top 5%of the stores BCF will tale the rest will be sold to a 3rd party.
So unless Lowery and the council have arms that reach to Ohio(location of DSW)or NJ (location of BCF)they did not have anything to do with it

Lowery likes to take credit for businesses that move in despite the fact that they would have moved in no matter who was mayor, then maybe he bears some responsibility if they leave.
Lowery supporters are virtually blind to the facts about Mr. Lowery. When someone's only strength as a leader is an ability and willingness to twist arms, they will eventually do more damage than good. Eventually, Mr. Lowery's arm twisting tactics will be his downfall.

What is your deal? I don't like Value City either so I just don't go. Now yet another building will stand empty and lots of people will have lost their jobs. How can you be glad the store is closing. No one makes you shop that place.

This also take away that much more money being spent in Florissant. People might go to Value City, then to Hooters or Bob Evans. This will have more of a chain reaction than "Unconcerned" thinks. WAY TO SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY.....not.

whats with that smell inside value city. I never spent too long in there just because it smelled like some kind of sweat shop was being ran in the back or something. Needless to say, I dont like the place either, but I do know people who shop there that really like the deals they get on household stuff like curtains, rugs, and stuff like that. I just cant do it, the smell makes me sick.

I forgot to mention I'd rather be at hooters too. Hooters smell better.

I meant hooters smells better. Leaving the s off of smell makes it sound like I'm talking about the other kind of hooters...you know, boobs.

Okay crab, stop trying to dig yourself out of that one or I'm telling Mrs. Crab next time I see her. Most likely in less than 24 hours. Every time you tried to get your foot out it just got stuck again. You crack me up!

I doubt if Unconcerned is even close to Florissant. The ISP location is in Baltimore, MD. Value City stores are in many other states. But I agree that any business that closes cannot be good to a community. Unless it's an illegal or immoral business.
