Default I declare...BANKRUPTCY!!!

Welp, it finally happened; the swamp has filed for bankruptcy.

They've announced about 40 store closings, are about to close 40 more stores, and will auction off the rest of their pharmacy business, but otherwise are trying to keep going.

Looks like I got off that sinking ship just in time.

ETA: my old store is one that is closing.

And as expected, I haven't encountered them (because I'm on the other side of the continent ).

But I expect I'll be hearing more about them in the next few weeks.

The local paper's website linked to a list on the Swamp's website listing 105 stores closing in the next few months. Apparently the Swamp nearest me is staying open. I've only been in it once.

I've never heard of this place in my life but I'm Canadian so not surprising. Congrats on getting out at a good time!
