    MAJOR retailers including Fry's Electronics and Christopher & Banks have closed permanently in the past year due to Covid. Other chains have shut plenty of stores as the pandemic continues to ravage the retail sector. 4Century 21 is among the retailers that went bust in the past year due to CovidCredit: Pacific Press/LightRocket via Ge Around 12,200 large and small retailers closed their stores in the US in 2020, according to data by real estate firm CoStar Group. This amounted to 159 million square feet of vacant retail space. Early on in the pandemic, some big retailers like Walmart, Costco, and Target, as well as drugstore chains CVS and Walgreens were deemed essential by authorities and allowed to stay open. Meanwhile, others were forced to shut and had to rely on online shoppers. In May last year, J.Crew then became the first big retailer to file for bankruptcy during the pandemic - but it has since recovered. Below's a list of shops that have had to close forever in the past year. Art Van Furniture In March last year,...
    Unemployment claims in California soared well above 100,000 last week, federal officials reported Thursday, a grim setback that suggests coronavirus-linked ailments still afflict the statewide job market. California workers filed 105,900 initial claims for unemployment benefits during the week that ended on March 6, up 16,900 from the 89,000 first-time claims workers filed in the week ending on Feb. 27, the U.S. Labor Department reported. The latest jobless claims filed in the most recent reporting period remained far above the weekly totals that would be typical for even a moderately healthy job market. A grim reality has surfaced: Nearly one year since state and local government agencies began to order business shutdowns to combat the deadly bug, California’s job market remains frail. In contrast to the struggles in California, unemployment claims nationwide improved last week. An estimated 712,000 workers in the United States filed unemployment claims during the week ending March 6, down 42,000 from the 754,000 claims filed the prior week. The nationwide numbers were adjusted for seasonal variations. For 45 of the last 49 weeks since the business...
    Despite publicly welcoming a court fight over his false claims about voting machines being used to steal the 2020 election from Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani doesn’t seem to be in much of a rush to respond to the billion-dollar defamation lawsuit filed against him by Dominion Voting Systems. After repeatedly dodging process servers last month, the former New York City mayor on Thursday asked a federal judge in Washington D.C. for a 35-day extension to respond to the $1.3 billion complaint filed by Dominion. Giuliani’s motion for more time, which was unopposed, was filed one day after the deadline for his response had passed. The motion was entered on the docket Friday. Giuliani said the heft of the lawsuit filed against him, coupled with problems in getting his attorney admitted to practice in D.C., is why he required more time to respond to Dominion. “Because the Complaint is voluminous and complex and because the Defendant has recently engaged counsel who is awaiting admission in the District for the District of Columbia, Defendant required additional time to answer or otherwise respond...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/AP) — Gregory Ulrich, the suspected gunman in Tuesday’s deadly shooting at the Buffalo health clinic, made previous threats to get revenge on the hospital, a police report shows. According to a Buffalo police report filed in October of 2018, a doctor told investigators that Ulrich called him three times, describing revenge scenarios against the Buffalo clinic, including “shooting and blowing things up.” Ulrich reportedly said he wanted his revenge to be sensational, “so that it makes an impact.” RELATED: Wright County Attorney: Charges Coming For Gregory Ulrich The doctor told investigators that he believed Ulrich was a threat to himself and society. He added that Ulrich mentioned other hospitals, including Abbott Northwestern, Duluth and Rochester. When police spoke with Ulrich, he said that he was only telling the doctor about his dreams to get revenge on the people that “tortured him,” referring to his back surgeries and resulting medication issues. After this conversation, Ulrich agreed to go to an emergency room in Monticello to get an evaluation, the report says. In response to the perceived...

    Singer FKA Twigs has filed a lawsuit against actor Shia LaBeouf accusing him of physically, mentally and emotionally abusing her during their former relationship. FKA Twigs, 32, whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett, filed the lawsuit against LaBeouf, 34, in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, the New York Times reported. At the center of a lawsuit is an incident involving Barnett riding as a passenger in a car driven "recklessly" by LaBeouf. According to the report, the singer-songwriter accuses LaBeouf "removing his seatbelt and threatening to crash unless she professed her love for him." Barnett goes on to accuse LaBeouf of acting ragefully toward her throughout the trip, and at one point, "waking her up in the middle of the night, choking her," the report continues.

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Initial claims for unemployment compensation continue to rise along with the state's number of coronavirus cases, the state reported Friday. For the week ending Nov. 7, 21,868 Ohioans filed claims for unemployment, according to the Department of Job and Family Services. That’s a 3% increase from the previous week when 21,263 Ohioans filed claims but nearly 20% higher than October figures. The state also said Ohioans filed 260,855 continuing unemployment claims last week, a figure considered a more reliable indicator of economic strength and one that has slowly decreased over the past few weeks. As coronavirus cases soar in Ohio, Republican Gov. Mike DeWine has warned he could order another shutdown of restaurants and bars. The industry has criticized the announcement, saying there's no evidence they are a cause of spread and that such a move would be economically devastating. One in every 315 people in Ohio tested positive for the virus in the past week, according to an Associated Press analysis of data provided by The COVID Tracking Project. Over the past two weeks, the...
    In the last fiscal year, Missouri taxpayers paid an average of more than $22 million less to settle lawsuits filed against the state than they did over the prior two years. According to newly-elected Attorney General Eric Schmitt, the state paid just $10 million for cases filed against the state ranging from sex and race discrimination to negligence, compared to $29.3 and $35.9 million over the last two fiscal calendars. The latest figures represent the state's lowest payout total for such expenditures since 2015. “Early on in our administration, we carefully analyzed and reviewed Legal Expense Fund expenditures,” spokesman Chris Nuelle told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “Since then, we have been intentionally aggressive in litigating cases wherever possible to protect precious taxpayer dollars.” In recent years, the rising cost of settling lawsuits had become a thorny issue for the state, forcing budget writers to set aside much needed resources for legal expenses instead of earmarking those funds for such projects as schools, social services and other state programs. In many cases, the payouts have stemmed...

            by Dan McCaleb  More than 1.1 million American workers filed new unemployment claims last week, a week after the number of claims dropped below the million mark for the first time since pandemic-related shutdowns were put in place in March. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, 1,106,000 workers filed new claims on a seasonally adjusted basis in the week ending Aug. 15. That’s up from the 971,000 new claims filed the week ending Aug. 8, which were adjusted up by 8,000, according to the department. Continued claims, which count workers who file for benefits at least two weeks in a row, dropped slightly to 14.8 million. California again saw the highest number of workers file new claims, with 201,640. – – – ​Dan McCaleb is the executive editor of The Center Square. He welcomes your comments.
