Department Store Chains Just Need to Connect with Younger Shoppers

The following is a review of Galaxy on Fire 2 in Apple's App Store.

So at first I saw this gam I thought that it was gonna be another lame game so I looked at the pictures and I said this game has very good graphics so I downloaded it forgetting that there was another Galaxy on fire so I didn't even download that and I had no idea what I had to do so I went and did the tutorial and I was soo excited to buy a new ship so I was trying to figure out where do I go to buy a new ship and I couldn't find it so I'm like I probably have to go further in the campaign so I did so I went and bought the cheapest ship I can find I flew it for hours and then I resumed doing the campaign and two hours later I ended it and then I saw that there was more to it so I bought all of the Dlc's and then it took me another 8 hours to end the rest of the campaign. Also I have one thing to ask you can you put it to the point where you can change your view into the cockpit and make the game multiplayer thanks and can you also add more things to the campaign. Thank you for making a game this good to the point I can't stop playing it. - ghjdfjhgfdhjzd

This isn't rocket science. If you are the CEO of a struggling department store chain, then you should know exactly what to do now.

Give up? Close stores? Lay off workers? What?

No, no, no! Simply connect with your future customer base! Don't be silly!

Los Angeles Times: Department stores reach out to capture young shoppers

The department store industry, coming off its worst year in three decades of market share decline, is mounting an all-out battle for the next generation of shoppers.

It's been 6 years. The department store industry may have lost nearly every battle, but the war is not lost yet. One must admire the ongoing tenacity in the face of perpetual doom!

Well the clothing these days is like wearing cheese cloth. Why waste your money. You are far better off buying better manufactured used clothing at a second hand store. I have a sweatshirt that I have had for over 18 years. Never one run or rip in the fabric. I work on my car and jog with this thing during the winter. Guess what it was made in the USA.

It seems like most things are designed to fail these days.

Dishwasher parts (we had to replace the silverware holder because it was dissolving), phone recharging cables that seem to degrade by touching them (thanks Apple!), phone batteries that can't easily be replaced by the user (thanks again Apple!), game console CDs that are no longer recognized (both Sony PS2 and PS3), eye sleeping masks that fall apart if washed gently (girlfriend sewed mine back together, better than new), and crock pot lids that weaken with use (had to glue ours back together) to name but a few.

Fortunately, many of our banks, although designed to fail, are actually too big to fail, so we've got that going for us, which is nice. Sigh.

Those are features, not flaws!

Un-pitted, I assume.

Speaking of olives, you are not going to bait me into bringing up oil and extra virgins as a possible reason for the divorce.

No, sir. Not going there. Leaving the speculation to the tabloids.
