Store list[edit]

Hi,

I added to the Virginia list of closed stores in Blacksburg and Christiansburg and Added West Virginia to the list with a store that is operating in Princeton, WV.Outdoors24 05:47, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

Yikes. That store locations list needs total cleanup. And where the hell was Scottsboro Mall? I can't find any evidence that Scottsboro ever had a mall. TenPoundHammer 04:06, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Also, since Rose's has no website (at least none that I've found), it's gonna be a pain to figure out which stores are still in business. TenPoundHammer 15:35, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

They failed to mention past stores in Morristown, TN and Newport, TN. The Store in Morristown closed almost 4 years ago to make room for Home Depot, while the Newport Store fell victim to the Bankruptcy issue in the early 1990s.

Okay, someone needs to really help here. I'm throwing the Expert tag on. Ten Pound Hammer(((ActionsWords))) 02:23, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

What's the point of even listing the old locations? Do any other articles about retail stores list former locations? I think someone looking at this article would be much more interested in knowing current locations. Either way, perhaps we should make two separate lists. Jipcy 20:28, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

I would think that old locations are of importance, especially when a chain has seen a significant wave of closings. Ten Pound Hammer(((ActionsWords))) 18:37, 14 May 2007 (UTC)
The Neiman Marcus article has either a list of former locations or a subarticle listing them. However, N-M is both more famous and smaller, so that list is more easily justified. This one is long, boring, and dragging down the article. There might be a shorter way of displaying the list that keeps it from drowning the piece.

There's mostly a list because they don't have their own website. --Jnelson09 21:41, 24 June 2007 (UTC)


Without looking at the history, was there a store list that was removed at some point? I can certainly verify that store #227 in Belmont, NC is still operating because I stopped in there yesterday. I personally think that since the number of stores was relatively small, so many have closed, and the chain doesn't have a dedicated website, that a listing of all stores and their status (operating or closed) would be helpful to people reading this article.
