Those supply chain and logistical failures sounds epic!
Two other major failures were they telegraphed where their stores were going to open years in advance so their competitors had an easy time getting ready for the competition. They also purchased all those second rate Zeller's locations which were generally at crappier malls in less desirable locations (i.e. locally I think most would agree that Uptown is a better location than Tillicum or Hillside).
Oh well. Locally I think I'll be quite happy with a Lowe's and a new C-Tire.
