Ridholtz has the list of 27 chains either going out of biz or cutting way way back on the number of stores that will remain open. In addition, he also points out that Linens & Things just went belly up, and Steve & Barrys recently filed for bankruptcy protection and sale. I don't even think he mentions Starbucks. There are tens of thousands of employees who will lose their jobs and tons of bankruptcy lawyers standing by to make a killing. I note that no breweries or whiskey stills are on the list.
