    Yeah, Raleys. I've lived here a few decades, and I can't remember a time when they were NOT "closing soon" or "going out of business."

    Sorry, but such sales tactics make me avoid a store.

    It took Thompson's forever, but they finally did it. And the building is still vacant.

    Years..as I recall. We bought furniture there twice over a couple years and the "Closing" sale went on for a long time after that!

    I wish our new house was done...Raley's has - or had - some nice pieces.

    Regency bought Raley's a year ago February.
    Any rumors about Regency opening here?

    I have seen those cars going up and down 235 for some time and, strangely enough, always in a single file line of three.

    Raley's building is part way torn down, pretty sure they are serious.

    One tactic furnature stores elsewhere do is a "Going out for business" sale, most people read that as 'Going out of business sale"
    If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.
