Bad news

November 18, 2008

Well, our worst fear is coming to fruition. We heard and read the rumors late last week and over the weekend, and Chris received confirmation yesterday. Only three months after the initial crisis and subsequent buy out, Steve and Barry’s is changing their bankruptcy filing from a chapter 11 to a chapter 7 and closing ALL stores.

This means that in addition to the thousands of people they have already let go, the remaining 5,000 (and all their families) will be let go. Merry Christmas. Doors are “strongly rumored”to close (at this point) BEFORE January 1.

My wonderful husband, sole financial provider, head of our household, amazing and involved father of our children will not have a job. Merry Christmas to us.

We are terrified.
We are in tears.
We are on our knees in prayer.
We know that God has a plan for us.
We wish we knew more.
We have faith in each other.
We have a strong marriage.
We have beautiful, healthy children.
We believe in an awesome God.
We know we will come through this.

We will keep you posted as we know more.
