Hi, sorry, we all found out today that Pamida is closing as of January 31st. This was the first time we had heard this.
We will not be taking checks anymore, no lay-aways, ect.
I hope you all will come see us before we close.
Thanks for your business.

Well guess I may as well throw away my rain check on the bar stools!
Now we see the rumors back in October were not rumors! Guess thats why there were no new Christmas Ornaments this past Christmas!
I Loved Pamida, being here close to home during the $4.00 gas explosion!

there will be no big "going out of business" sales...we will be packing the stuff up after the 31st, and shipping it to other stores... there might be a bigger percent off on Christmas, and the clothing, but we arent sure yet...
i do appreciate the people on here that are nice to me, and good to the store... we Love you, and are sad this has happened...
if you are going to be an idiot, or an asshole, don't do it in here, it's Unnecessary!

I really am sorry to hear about this. Losing more jobs is not what Scottsville needs right now. Sadly, replacing those jobs isn't likely to happen any time soon. That building is about 30,000 sq. ft. That's a big box for a small town that will probably be empty for a long time. I hope I'm wrong. Wonder if it could be retro-fitted for a new courthouse?

Store closings in this economy are likely to reach record levels this year. Some very large, well known chains could very well shut down completely. The demise of Circuit City, Linens and Things, and others is only the beginning. I read yesterday that Zales, Lane Bryant and Eddie Bauer may not be around at the end of 2009.

I wish all of the employees of Pamida the best.

My comment wasnt meant to hurt anyone it was a statement.
I did hear they were closing months ago .
Scottsville has died people..... weve let the same people or groups run our town into the ground.
We have nothing but two factorys now .
Why wont they do something instead of false maybes and more commissions .
We need jobs here to keep stores open we need jobs to feed our kids.

well, most people did most of their shopping in Bowling Green...
we, the employees, knew of other closings, but no one in OUR store knew we were closing till today...
this town won't last much longer- unless you are a farmer...

Roaming, do you know how many other stores Pamida is closing? Are they closing the Morgantown store? I worked in that store several years ago.

Retailers across the country are facing a harsh reality. General Growth Corp., the company that owns Greenwood Mall, and many others is presently in chapter 11 bankruptcy. Dillards has been closing stores and the BG store has been rumored to join that list. Macy's is another national chain reducing their number of stores.

I know none of this is of any consolation to you or your co-workers, but this is not a problem that is exclusive to Scottsville.

Good luck.
