Great, I can hardly wait to avoid both chains.

“stitches up deal…” really, are we in 6th grade now? In an amusing or cute little piece of little consequence, this could be overlooked, but when referring to a major business merger, this childish play on words has no place. Sad that our “best” writers are so bad at what they do.

This is sad. Men’s Warehouse is overpriced and full of pushy sales people; after 2 similar experiences at 2 separate store I vowed never to go back (also did buy anything either time).

Jos. A. Bank on the other hand I would happily go back to, their prices are more reasonable and the sales people have always been informative rather than pushy. Looks like now it’s time to find a new place to get my suits from.

“did not mention any plans to close stores”

No, they didn’t. But it’s obvious that they will. I know that there are many, many shopping malls where both Men’s Warehouse and Jos. A. Bank have stores. Unless they do some kind of rebranding effort and make one of them more upscale than the other, they WILL close stores. This is patently obvious to everyone.

Boy, watch prices go through the roof now at the new Men’s Warehouse. If you can’t beat them, buy the out and close the stores. The American way.

It must be nice to be a Republican senator, with a generous salary, and health benefits, and government perks. They can take their time playing “party politics’, while these poor unemployed workers , are left struggling to provide for their families, without unemployment benefits. It’s always easier to look the other way, or to point a finger to blame the victims for their circumstance. The Republican party who prides itself on being “the party for family values”, have not approved an unemployment extension, for several times, since late December. Each time the bill was proposed by the Democrats, the Republican party voted it down in the senate. There are more than two million unemployed workers, with families, who have since had to face eviction, home foreclosures, bankruptcy, and many families are now homeless. How sad in a great country such as ours, where tax payer’s dollars pay for corporate welfare, and Foreign Aid, bank bailouts, and Airline bailouts, but not spent on the average American in need of help. Why is this? Shame on the Republican Party for not having the compassion, and common decency to help their fellow man in need. They will be remembered in the 2016 election I am sure
