well i know one.
Drusilla Seafood.
they at one time had really good food. if someone else owns it now it may be different.
but went there a few years ago, and:
sis in law sent her seafood gumbo back because it had NO seafood in it.
my wife had crabmeat au gratin and it had hardly IF ANY crabmeat in it.
my stuffed crab was bread crumb filling only. didn't find ANY crab in it either.
That was the last time i've ever gone there.

K-Mart/Sears - how did k-mart buy sears while under bankruptcy protection?

Ace Hardware - very glad they are still around. Just don't know how they compete with the big box stores.

Any conventional All-State - State Farm type agent ran insurance business. The type of place when you do need them, your agent tries to talk you out of filing a claim because your rates will go up. And if you insist, they give you an 800 number to call.

I visited my parents in Keystone Heights, FL last month and there was a Sell-your-Stuff-on-Ebay store in town, right next to a radioshack -- not even a radioshack, and "authorized radioshack dealer." And not too far from that was an internet cafe (like the legit non-gambling kind). Blew my fricking mind. Thought it was 1997.

Got some chairs and a table from Compass. There prices are better than anyone. Same brand and better price, I'd say they make it up in volume.
The chairs where custom fabric.

They make pretty good money it's about $200 to $400 to furnish a one bedroom apt. People who travel for work use them.

Nope. I was in 4 car accidents(2 were my fault) in 4 years during my youth and my rate went down by 25 cents, believe it or not. State Farm has been on the ball every time I've needed them.

I haven't seen a commercial for those fellas in a decade, but there's one right by where I work, and I have never been in the store.

Cox Business services - easily the worst service for a legitimate business that I've ever experienced.

I saw Pizza Hut 3 times. WTF? Who hates the hut? Pizza is delicious and the salad bar is the shit, or at least it was the last time I ate there 10 yrs ago.

1. Cortana mall
2. George's under Perkins overpass. It's gucking gross and I'm not picky. I know, it's packed but I don't understabd why.
3. The Office downtown. I don't know if its changed, but last time I went, I had to go to the same bitch bartender every time I needed a drink. Worst idea for a bar ever.

Stine Lumber is an Ace Hardware distributor. Other than that they are usually minimally staffed.
