    Post 10 Brands That May Disappear in 2011

    24/7 Wall St. regularly compiles a report of brands that are likely to disappear in the near-term. Last April, and again in December, we published our findings. Usually, it would take a full year before such a list could be compiled again. However, the current economic climate has accelerated this process and a majority of the brands on the first two lists are either gone, have been acquired, or have filed for bankruptcy.

    Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (KJV)

    10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord. (KJV)

    Unfortunately no big shocks for me...
    I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

    Wow - some are household names here. So sad.

    Readers Digest - mum used to read it, and so do I. Love the jokes.

    Blockbuster - oh to walk along the perimeter of the wall to find all the new movies. Now where am I gonna go. I hate those red boxes.

    T-Mobile. The only service we get up here. I love buying the cards for my son to use for emergencies (especially when it snows).

    BP -- well won't be missing them much

    Radio Shack -- eh? Could take em or leave em.

    Zale Corp - If this is the jeweler, I'm sad. I bought many of my early day jewelry from them.

    Unhappy

    I'm sad to see RD on the list. I love to read them. My favorite part is the "That's Outrageous" section.

    Hm. Isn't BP a bunch of Union workers? Do I smell a bailout? Interesting. Hold their feet to the fire for 20 billion, they go under, and we, the taxpayers pay up. More than once.
