Is anybody out there?

I bought Bombay back in 2003, right as it was starting to rise again. my wife and I have always liked Bombay's furniture look. For dark cherry and mahogany furniture, they provide quality at reasonable prices. When it was over $10, I was thinking about the philosophy to let my winner run. Oops.

They just haven't been able to manage their inventory or sales, despite some effort. And though my wife and I continue to shop there, we note that there are never too many customers there, and stuff is always being marked down. Good as a consumer, bad as a shareholder.

I'm giving this one last holiday shopping season. Either results are positive or I'm gone. And if I'm the last one, I'll shut off the lights when I unclick this board from my favorites list.
