It's three, Three, THREE defunct stores in one!

It's three, Three, THREE defunct stores in one!
Across the street from the Family Dollar, I couldn't help but chuckle at the almost parodic scene that greeted my eye: A shopping center that was a complete graveyard of dead and dying retail names.

From left to right: Sam Goody, sold to Trans World/FYE in 2006 and lending a "space available;" Steve & Barry's, filing for bankruptcy twice in the last year and having its "store closing" sale at the moment this was taken, and Goody's Family Clothing (no relation to Sam), another bankrupt retailer now in the process of liquidating its assets.

No doubt, the next time I pass this way, the only thing I'll see is tumbleweeds rolling by...
