Local sporting goods chain goes bankrupt
In todays Salem Statesman Journal, a front page story announcing that a local northwest chain, Joe's Sports, Outdoor, and More, is likely to go bankrupt. Joe's had been in business for 57 years and employs around 1,500 people who will presumably lose their jobs. One store advised holders of gift cards to redeem them today since after that they would not be honored.
