Mervyns movin' on

Mervyns has announced that it is closing its Crossroads Mall store for keeps come March. This is in addition to closing the Midvale store, which will be gone by the end of the month (Utah shouldn't feel alone. Mervyns is effectively shutting down its Midwest operations and COMPLETELY shutting down its Oregon and Washington operations. Lots of anchors going dark.). No word on what effect the Crossroads renovation has had on this decision or what effect this decision will have on the renovation.

A recent survey at Careerbuilder.com found that 35% of retail employees intend to leave their jobs during 2006. I don't think this is what they had in mind.
