"Elkins Shop N Save manager Edward Clevenger said store employees stocked the shelves with extra toilet tissue"

It all started when Sears stopped printing a catalog. Do they carry the Washington Post?

It doesn't take a genius to figure this one out. When the weather is nice poeple spend more time outdoors. More time outdoors equals more time spending money. Unless they're spending money on the internet. Strange how the economy works, like I said before what's bad for one business might be good for another. When it snows people buy more snow shovels and salt. When it's sunny people buy more sunscreen, and when it's rainy yep you guessed it, more umbrellas. When the economy is " bad" where does the money go? It doesn't go anywhere. We still have the same amount of money it just doesn't get passed around as much. Why were there record highs on Wall Street last year. How do you explain? I know the Feds are propping up the economy. It seems the economy is not that bad after all. But that's how it is. If everyone was rich no one would need to work (at least not as hard) and we can't have that now can we? That's just how it is, they pay you just enough to keep you coming back

Third time Obama and dems demand extending unemployment checks. WHY? Because of Obama/democrats socialist policies that have cost MILLIONS of jobs in this nation. Because Obama's and democrats' policies of sending jobs overseas. Because Obama and dems are incompetent at economics.

HOw do I know this? Because their mouthpiece, Nancy Pelosi stated, as the DNC claimed, "Unemployment checks help create jobs!" Stupidest statement of the CENTURY!!!

Slow sales is due to Obama's killing of JOBS!

Cold weather has been around since beginning of time. Last years winter didn't create low sales either. Or the previous winter or the one before that!

The JOB KILLER in the WH and the JOBS KILLERS in the Democrat controlled house and senate in the first several years of Obama is the destructive force behind this.

Reagan made Headlines! Obama/Dems make Breadlines!

Ummm. So Major. Are you trying to say it was Obama who slowed down sales, not the bad weather? Sorry but when I want double quarter pounder I'm not thinking of Obama. Even for some strange reason if I was at that particular moment, I'm not going to go up to the drive through and say "Oh, nevermind, I don't feel like spending now because Obama is in office" screech.
