I haven't been inside a Sears store for more than 10 years, until Thursday, June 22. And, wow, did I learn a lot. Mainly, I came away with a better understanding of why Sears Holdings Corp. is closing an additional 20 stores on top of the 245 it already planned to shutter. And why it has failed to turn a profit in 29 out of the last 37 quarters and seen same-store sales decline in 11 of the past 12 quarters. I observed alienating treatment of a loyal customer at the store in Jersey City, N.J., which was also messy and uninviting inside. When I came upon customer Stephanie Rosso, a resident of Jersey City, she was struggling with four employees to get a simple return transaction completed for
The owner of a gay bar in Vermont has abandoned the name Mister Sister and is seeking forgiveness after three months of bitter controversy. The new name of the Winooski area's only gay bar, which opened in March, will be The Bridge Club. "I hope everyone finds the humor in going to 'The Bridge Club' to party, sees the nod to the historic Winooski Bridge and recognizes the camaraderie and necessity in building bridges," owner Craig McGaughan wrote on Facebook.

She claims the real meddling came from political pundits. During an interview with CNN on Friday, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway was unable to point to a single thing President Trump is doing to prevent Russia from interfering in future elections.

North Korea’s decision to release U.S. student Otto Warmbier, who died on Monday after returning home in a coma, was partly attributable to ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman’s trip to the authoritarian state, according to the former basketball player himself. Warmbier was detained by North Korea for almost 17 months after being arrested in January 2016, allegedly for trying to steal a propaganda poster.
