    Yeah you are telling me...I spent 2 weeks boxing up a 20k order for Joe's at work, only to have them cancel it because of this.

      joe

      sorry to hear its leaving I loved shopping at that store. After its gone they should level a couple more nearby stores and put in a Cabela's....but they might have to take out a little more than that , ours is on just under 150 acres. Wish it had some baskets out there.

        I headed to the Hillsboro Joes today at lunch. A sign said 20% off discs. I found a sweet bright green DX 150g Cheetah and proceeded to check out. Original price $8.99 and they tried to only take off $1. I said.. no, the sign said 20%. They said.. that's not our sign, we are the liquidation company, there is nothing we can do here. I said.. no, you take 20% off.. she was not happy, but did it. I really wanted that disc.. anything else I would have walked.

          When they changed the name they changed the store too. High prices and the sale is a rip off just like Joes. Glad to see you go Joes and bring back GI joes.

            Life is strange

            Throughout most of my life there have always been those stores that I drive by with giant 'Going out of Business' signs. And year after year they are still 'Going out of Business'. Then the state passes a law to restrict this type of sale to when a business is actually closing (way too late in my opinion).
            Funny how no sooner does that law pass, the economy turns south and here we are again with lots of 'Going out of Business' sales!
            Hath this whole world been mired in madness?
            Remain ye men of faculty complete,
            Of full arithmetic and prudence fair,
            Attending to our noble bond and contract?
            Or does here stand the last remaining man
            To give a fig for rules and order yet,
            No noble savage, but a stave unbroken
            Who loves the law and bids it no misdeed.
            Iíll not be bent to lawlessness. Mark it nought, if we be men of honour.

My dad used to take us to the big store that used to be south of Delta park on Vancouver. It was so big it was in like three buildings, and it had all the old painted bomb casings lining the parking lots. Actully some of those old bomb casings are still there. Then there was the Jean Machine where all the cool kids shoped for their cloths back in the day.

              I'll miss GI Joe's too. I went in today just to check it out.
              Pretty crap but they were marking down some stuff while I was there. It was mostly old clothes.
              I did take the opportunity to stock up on Snap Caps. Huge discount

                I went to the Gi Joes in Hillsboro today and all that was left was crap. I think there were 2 ulgy red Tls for $20 and a couple ~150 DX Rocs. Plenty of Lightning stuff If you are into that. I didn't really notice good deals on anything else either.

                    I just saw a piece on this very issue on the news. Let's face it, it is no longer Joe's or GI Joes; they sold all their merchandise for .40 cents on the dollar. The folks doing the selling are buy-out pros and getting the most for the junk they have.
