We had a similat, but regional, chain that was only in New York and Connecticut I think, called Caldor's, they covered the same portion of the market. We had expensive. sorta hi.

  • ASS-P: Westchester County is part of the New York City metro area but when I speak of it I'm speaking of Westchester, not NYC, Manhattan of " the bouroghs ".

  • ASS-P: ...Thank you# Yeah, 50-something, says Wiki. The whole operatic death scene of Sears had stopped getting media attention recently and likewise I'd heard of the big I'd status little if any after hearing of a plan pushed for by Lampert's creditors that would've closed down both K-Mart and Sears...

  • Tuxedo Mark: My Walmart has them. As for Kmart, there are only 50 left in the entire country (according to their website). Maybe even less.

  • ASS-P: That Wal-Mart didn't carry the DC Giants either. When they first came out, I saw them there, and other " gimmick/stunt "-packaged issues. I read that some Targets were going to carry the DC Giants but I haven't seen any at any Target where I've been.

  • ASS-P: I went to a Wal-Mart-Mart recently and saw no digests, is what I meant.
    May 16, 2020, 11:06:03 pm
  • ASS-P: ...Oh, and does anyone here eveI went to a Wal-Mart recently, and they did not have digests that I could see, or the brandedr see standard-format comic books being sold at other non-comics shop.places? The last I heard, DC still had some newsstand and I presume ACP's comic books would have some too.
    May 16, 2020, 11:04:58 pm
  • ASS-P: Asaannd...does anyone here see the digests anywhere these last two months? Has newsstand distribution of the digests ceased completely?

I haven,t been bacck here for a while , I know .
  For one , I REALLY have tended to have difficulty getting enough Internet time - and , I have REALLY been having health issues :'(  (as [size=78%]well as mucho financial/possessions ones[/size] :'( ) - And , I have bought very few comics :'(  , and quite few Archiees - Partly I,ve just gotten out of the habit - Here in San Francisco now there is only one cmic store I know how to get to easily and they are fairly small-scale - I think they give the New Riverdale 32s a fair play , in fact but I have never bought any 32s of BV , Jug , or Reg - I have rather enjoyed the issues I,ve bought of the Archie 32 , but my money/transportation issues and maybe feeling : it,s a new era : and sort of thinking : Well , mmaybe I,ll train myself to buy or library0=-read something so obviously designed for book collection : about the new Archie -=- Oh , and there,s my health issues . Too .
  It,s my birthday today :) ;D .
  Did this site shut down AGAIN in the months since I was last here ? (Actually , as far as my  degree of involvement with this site goes , in my years coming here I think I,ve had a tendency to come here and put up a lot of posts , maybbe try to cover up the entire : Recent Topics : column - but then not come back for a long time .
  I am actually writing this from a hospital , where I,ve been essentially the last week getting treated for an effect of my Congestive Heart Failure (CGF) - that leads me to massively baloon waterweight , from a normal 270s pounds (I am not a slim person :o ) , 5, 9: ,I was again up to 335 pounds this time - it had happened before , 325-ish then :'(  and took much Lazik , making me massively - Well , you know :-X .
  I also wal=lk using a crutch , and , wrse , hobble along really slowly/tending t get tired due to the CHF :'(  . I have only 7&1/2 toes due to diabetic infections a couple years back :'( . I have COPD of the lungs , too , making (Renal kidney failure too) me at times , cough a great deal :'( .
  I could talk some about my financial problems too :'( .
  If I am in this hospital tonight , oddly enough , their TV system may not get the CW station in San Francisco , it seems it gets the : big : broadcast and a lotta cable stations but not these : second division : broadcast stations !

...I forget what I had to say, I'm afraid :-\ ...My health has continued to be a problem, still...And when I tell you, well, though, in fact, I suppose I am literally on the upward track now...I am down to 4&1/2 toes total :'(  (Yup, diabetes.), and I'm now in a.convalescent/nursing place, with tbis thing called a WoundVac perpetually a ball-and-chain on my right " foot ", which has just one toe on it now :'( . I am taking a Paratransit ride to downtown Santa Cruz today ( Which I've again moved to from San Francisco :o :D .) and I plan to restablish the relationship I had with my LCS here, so I feel neat-o now! :)

DeCarlo Rules

Sorry to hear. You gotta watch the sugar and sodium intake, get some exercise (lose weight if that's a factor), and lower your blood pressure if you can. Of course you probably have meds, but diet and exercise are a big help in controlling your diabetes, and it's really all you can do for yourself. Some people are just more genetically at risk, but what can you do? You just have to learn to adapt your lifestyle. It is what it is.
