More on Floors and Beyond
Couple things on Floors and Beyond, the flooring business that abruptly closed in Rochester:
• As Lando pointed out, the entire comment thread on the Floors discussion was pulled this morning. Unfortunately, I was out of the office this morning when this happened. My bosses, of course, have the power to police comments.
The latest comment included some nasty name-calling. I love the free-wheeling nature of the discussions on here. However, I deem that kind of posting as unacceptable as does the management of the newspaper.
Now, if I had been here, I would have either just pulled that one comment or edited it. And like with the James and Cori comment, I would have just unpublished it. That means it still exists and could be posted again.
Unfortunately, my computer is somehow more powerful than our technical department's computers. No one else can seem to do that. And it is deemed "simpler" to delete all of the comments, not just the offensive one.
Sigh. That's the story behind this one. It seems I should not be out of the office in the mornings.
• Many have asked if any other customers are upset with Floors and Beyond. I got a note from a guy whose homeowners association paid a $1,500 deposit through a bill pay service on 3/12. It was cashed on 3/13. The store closed on march 9, according to owner Chad Tufty. The home owners association is looking into its legal options.
