    Tandy store closings

    perhaps this is their version of a Corona Virus surcharge.

    Tandy store closings

    Which location was that? Current indicators are that they have closed 8 stores. They are negotiating with their landlords and vendors to get out of others.

    Tandy store closings

    yeah, I think they have pretty much burned thru all their cash reserves - mostly in bonus to upper management and they may get delisted from the stock exchange (the kiss of death). seems that history is repeating itself. they may keep the stores closed and try a 'internet only' concept. we all know how well that worked for Tandy 1.0 I wonder if this will make my craftool USA tools more valuable?
  4. I drove by the Dallas store today. It is closed, empty, and the sign is down so there is truth to the rumors. The Mesquite store is still there although closed despite being allowed to open starting yesterday. Phoenix,Austin, Ny, St. Leonard are suppose to follow suit Monday although no formal announcement from TLF damagement. I'm guessing they are busy with all the lawsuits right now.
  5. seems my last post was deleted. Tandy is not honoring their gift cards claiming the distribution center (a store) cannot process them. don't know what was so egregious about letting people know about that. Good luck with your gift cards and store credits.
  6. Most of it is coming from the Yahoo Finance pages. There is the link: TLF Stock If the stores are being told to inventory and start sending stock back to Ft. Worth. they aren't going to be restocked. Go to their web page, there are only about 5 us stores listed which are doing internet orders. Oh they'll use the Covid shutdowns as an excuse but the truth is they've been on a steady decline for several years. the stock is in the toilet and close to being delisted for cooking the books. They have several lawsuits in the works related to misleading their investors. The management gave themselves a $5 million bonus while effectively cutting out the bonuses of the stores. In fact the mgr at the kansas store walked out before the shutdowns. Nothing official from TLF corp. though. Maybe someone who works (worked) at one of the stores will chime in.
  7. well Tandy seems to be on it's last legs. They may not be coming back after the lockdown. so checkout Springfield Leather.

    what is handmade?

    so if you use a makers stamp to impress your logo versus cutting it in with a swivel knife - has it diminished the fact the item is 'hand made'?

    what is handmade?

    oh boy, here we go. that's a loaded question kind of like is leatherwork craft or art? and.....go.
  13. if they do it will most likely be more expensive that other Cobra dealers.
