    • What kids have 50.00 to blow at the mall? GME does well because ADULTS are still buying video games and trading in their old ones for pennies that GME turns around and makes a HEFTY profit off of.

      Circuit City and CompUSA both died because they were POORLY RAN companies...I used to go into CC and find Video Games still on the shelves 1-2 years after they should have been long ago clearanced.

      Staples itself is a well run OFFICE SUPPLY/TECH RETAILER. And once we get the economy back on track it will do just fine. Will ODP go under...maybe but not OMX or Staples.

      The three major Bookstore chains aren't going anywhere either...Books a Million, Barnes and Noble and even Borders will survive once they shake off their creditors and bad leases.

      I hope the Online Tax issue does go away. But greedy States will keep trying and with affiliates only left in Montana and Wyoming I think that may hurt ALOT for AMAZON....NOT TO MENTION the fact CNET just ran a story saying the new B&N Simple Touch Reader is the best dedicated Ereader out even beating the Kindling...

    • could have said the same about books bro. But look at them now. Look at them now. Borders is bust, barnes and nobles was bought last minute. Its evolution of retail to the internet and those who were there first(amazon) are destroying the ones taking up space on the street. Lower overhead leads to lower prices!!! no brainer! RIP Staples.

      • First of all, Borders isn't bust they just wanted a way to get out of some poorly negotiated long term leases and cut loose under performing stores. Bad management is their problem and lack of forward thinking. My local Borders at the mall is ALWAYS busy and not just foot traffic, buyers, including me.

        And Barnes and Noble will eventually Trounce Amazons crappy Kindle as they are already beginning to do with the NOOK Color a Nice Fully Functioning Tablet that STAPLES actually began carrying May 1st as well. And as if that wasn't enough they just released an Upgraded Cheapo Touchscreen E-reader to directly Trump the Kindling. Oh and B&N...not sold either...Liberty Media offered 17.00 a share and the stock immediately skyrocketed from 14.00 to 20.00 now down to 18.32 thanx to our crappy economy news. But it will never sell for 17.00 a share they low balled and investors see they are getting one of the cheapest TECH stox and a dominant E-book seller of the future....

        Last of all, I've heard the Doom and Gloom speaches before about Gamestop and the DIGITAL GAME REVOLUTION where everyone will pay 50.00 to download a game you don't physically own. YET, low and behold GME just had a record Earnings quarter and the stock is way up as a result....point is If you do the research manufactured Hysteria can make you alot of money by running the otherway...

        AND last of all, we'll see how much of an EDGE AMAZON has once ALL this legislation passes forcing them to pay sales tax....
