Charter Spectrum Review

Charter Spectrum Review

Charter Spectrum has our cable TV service for our city. I have no issues with any of the people who came to our house to troubleshoot issues. I do despise this utility for their corporate business plan for the following reasons: They refuse to finish fiber optic cables to the homes. They do have fiber optics runs within a quarter of a mile. To finish fiber optic runs to the homes would cost them a lot of money. Their TV packages…

My offense was to include prices that I paid for this and that item in some posts so my readers could get an idea of the project cost. I do not appreciate nor will allow anyone telling me how to write my blog posts. This example above, allegedly, might be another example of a corporation trying to control news.

Brick And Mortar Stores Need To Quit Being Stupid

Brick And Mortar Stores Need To Quit Being Stupid

My wife and I open our postal mail once a month.  We get paid once a month.  Our bills arrive once a month.  I pay electronically my bills at the beginning of the month.  My wife stacks a whole months of snail mail on my desk.  I just opened REI’s  Anniversary Sale booklet showing your sale took place May 19 – 29, 2017.  Today is June 5th.  We missed the sale.  My point is this.  Brick and mortar stores are…

PayPal Review

PayPal Review

For me using PayPal has been a pain and comes close to a scam operation.  I made past purchases using PayPal but for some reason some charge(s) gets shifted over to their credit unit.  I always pay off all my purchases immediately using my credit card.  I never carry a balance.  I see no reason PayPal credit unit should get involved.  When that department does get involved they charge huge late fees for any small amount.  I got so pissed…

Sports Chalet

Archive post (taken down 12/2016) United States, Brick And Mortar Sporting Goods Stores Are In Flux Why Sports Chalet May Have Been Taken Down It seems to me that Vestis Retail Group may have realized that it could not easily appreciate, measure and thus manage  a store that offered technical customer service in addition to everyday fitness and sports product.  Vestis typically offers product only and may have come to realize that Sports Chalet had technical services that were not…

Letter To REI To Consider Former Sports Chalet Store.

Letter To REI To Consider Former Sports Chalet Store.

I received reports that the Sports Chalet store in Brea, California seemed to have a special positive standing in the community.  Here are some empirical indicators: Customers arriving at the checkout during the liquidation sales made comments to the staff that they did not like any other sporting good store.  Some were close to crying. The manager of the liquidation company made the statement that in over 10 years of offering liquidation sales, he had never seen a store like…
