Jos. A. Banks wants to buy Edie Bauer. Bauer’s never been the same since Pillsbury General Mills bought it in the 60s.

    Could it be worse than the fate that befell Abercrombie & Fitch?

    Sad, I remember Eddie Bauer when it was a high end manufacturer of outdoor gear, including excellent sleeping bags, in the early ’60s. Their stuff was considered premium, usually better than Gerry or Holubar, before North Face and Sierra Designs (let along Marmot or Patagonia or the rest of the newer outfitters) came along.

    Off topic – but any recommendations for a service to clear snow off a house roof? Recall a service that posted signs in OG last winter but haven’t seen them this season.
