    This is really lousy news to get right before Christmas. King of Prussia is just down the road from here:

    Seriously, Iam... WTF? 1,000 people lose their jobs and you think that's 'good' because you prefer a different brand? On what intellectual level does that make sense?

    I guess this means we can look forward to Chinese-made Heinz ketchup and whatever unknown shit they'll put in it.

    Then shame on you. 1,000 people out of work, right before Christmas. I have to admit, I am more than a tad disappointed that you find it funny.

    We had a brand new Lowes open up in our town within the past year. There is one a town over that is due to close. It'll be interesting to see if folks will drive to ours to do their shopping or if they'll just go back to The Home Depot. Currently the new Lowes isn't doing much business anyway.

    I'm sorry for anyone who is getting laid off just before the holidays. The folks at Heinz and at Lowes. I've been buying Heinz ketchup for years and hope to continue to seeing it's the best ... IMHO.
