Boater’s World Closing
Yesterday, I was headed to get my kids from school and the dayglo banner stood out like a sore thumb. GOING OUT OF BUSINESS!
As the Washington Post reported on March 11th, a bankruptcy court approved the sale of the chain from the assets of Ritz Camera (Boater’s World parent). It certainly didn’t take long to begin the liquidation. I imagine in two weeks time, the store will be vacant–flashbacks to Circuit City.
Store managers of some of the affected locations are stating that sales this past weekend eclipsed the sales of January and February combined. Apparently there are some deals to be had.
The sad part is that more people in Anne Arundel County will be unemployed as a result. The Capital is reporting that 30 area jobs will be affected.
