I see them waiting until at least late January to file for bankruptcy. That's when they'll have full data from the 2012 Christmas selling season available. They'll have to know acknowledge the futility of continuing to starve the stores and expecting sales to magically materialize. Eddie thought that all the retailing experts were fools for telling him to invest money into the customer's shopping experience. Eddie thought he could let leaky roofs leak and run the stores with a handful of people. Who's got egg on his face now???
