Their stuff has been horrible for a long time. I haven't bought there in years.

Ditto. I hope they manage to stay in business somehow. I dont get how its Obama's fault tho; businesses come and go, thus is the nature of capitalism.

I think when they have the liquidation started, ill buy some shirts and ties and another suit. Really nothing like it around, although there are a few shops here and there that can offer good prices.

Not true. I have been working near the Trinity Place Sym's for 13 years. I used to go very often and got tons of great suits and stuff rom them over the years. It's just lately that I've noticed that the quality wasn't good and the clothes weren't nice. Clothes, underwear, purses. etc.

I knew there was trouble when they were doing renovations on SYMS to combine it with filene's basement...

Fortunately for us, bankruptcy means little today, except for a liquidation and "back in business" sales!!!

Well I was in that store 2 weeks ago and we found lots of good stuff so it is true.

unless they find a buyer soon, its full liquidation. Sysms will be no more :(
