business news in context, analysis with attitude

USA Today reports that children’s clothing retailer Gymboree is expected to file for bankruptcy protection as soon as this week and close all of its 900 stores.

It will be the company’s second bankruptcy filing in two years. When the first one happened, the company closed some 350 stores.
KC's View:
Gymboree had been conducting what it called a “comprehensive review of strategic options” since last month. Guess it didn’t take too long for management there to figure out that its competitive position was untenable.

Turn out the lights.
The party’s over.
They say that all
Good things must end
Call it a night
The party's over…
