Two more home improvement liquidation stores have opened in the Twin Cities. Jimmy Vosika, who opened MN Home Outlet in Burnsville in 2014, opened new stores in Woodbury in December and in Coon Rapids last week, selling tools, lighting, large and small appliances, flooring, plumbing, vanities, TVs and other items returned to hardware stores, discounters, warehouse clubs and ecommerce sites.
Walmart announced yesterday that it is closing 63 Sam's Club locations across the country, including warehouses in St. Louis Park and Moorhead, Minn.The stores were closed Thursday but re-opened Friday with storewide discounts of 25 percent. A representative in St. Louis Park said the store's last day will be Jan. 26. Many retail going-out-of-business sales start at 25 percent off and then scale up to 75 or 90 percent.
J. Crew will close two of its four Twin Cities locations in Mall of America and Southdale. Both stores will close Jan. 27. The women’s, men’s and children’s preppy apparel retailer announced in November that it would close 39 stores after years of lackluster sales. In the most recent quarter it reported a sales decline of 12 percent. The once-charmed brand that gained international attention when Michelle Obama wore their designs started to experience sales declines several years ago.
The Dayton's/Macy's spring flower show will bloom again! Twin Cities' residents hoped someone would spring to life after Macy's closed in downtown Minneapolis. The @Galleriaedina will bring the show to Edina March 25-April 8, 2018 with the show's longtime partner @shopbachmans. https://t.co/VDnEDbIQll
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
