Not a Good Sign

Where are the unemployed supposed to shop now that the 99 Cent Store is going out of business?
NEW YORK (CBS 11 News / AP) ― Discount retailer 99 Cents Only Stores says it will leave the Texas market, closing 48 stores because operations are unprofitable.

The company said it will focus on its 230 remaining stores, which are in California, Arizona and Nevada. Those stores bring approximately 90 percent of its total revenue. 99 Cents Only Stores said stores in the "very challenging" Texas market were generating about half the revenue of its stores in other states.
This is reason number 158 I'm glad I don't live in Texas.

I would have just changed the signs to the 0x99¢ store.

0x99 ? Is that a hex joke like 0xdeadbeef or 0xb00b1e5 ? [ed: this font sucks for numbers]

My Dad loves $0.99 stores, but he's a freak.

Reason for not living in Texas #157 : I'm not a steer.

Thank you, Butternut. Yes, it's a hex joke. That B00B1E5 is going to come in handy.
