Best Place To Confuse You About The Politics Of Bankruptcy (2008)


Hold on a sec, KMART—you're still open, your prices are still the same, and you still don't restock? What does "bankrupt" mean nowadays . . . ? Reader! Remember how, previous to Kmart's January 2002 declaration of bankruptcy, the word carried promise of mass price-slashing, connoted discount bins piled high with booty, drastic price reductions shouted out on florescent posters, and resulted in the eventual closure of a store? F bluelight, that shit should be indigo! But, no! In 2002, we lean Kmart vultures circle endlessly in the urban sky, sore eyes scanning for the death we thought we had sighted down below.
