Kinkos Fed Ex Saginaw

Kinkos Fedex Saginaw, Tittabawassee

Another shocker that comes like a wave during same time period of closings by Steve and Barry's and now Circuit City. This one along with those others were busy businesses. They were stores that brought value to the community. Not that restaurants don't but its clear restaurants come and go. These are chain stores that have been in Saginaw for years. We have all been there. Circuit City inspired competition from Best Buy if you went TV shopping. Steve and Barry's let you could get some cool college clothes cheap,, and with Kinkos you could get your copies made, packages shipped, all within one a square block... What more could you ask for??

As the writer of this blog, I have to say this closing was more alarming and disturbing than any of the others. Kinkos bailing out was a huge disappointment to Saginaw business climate.

I spoke with an employee at the office just before it was closing, and they explained their take on the reasoning behind it.

"fedex looked at their sales figures from the last 2 years from July 2006 to July 2008 and they werent where they needed to be, even though the location showed numbers far above average since July 2008."

They ending up closing a several offices nationwide, and 2 from Michigan (the other near Detroit). Kinkos still operates a location in Bay City.

other closings within that square block
(pep boys, don pablos, chi chis, circuit city, buffet max, dairy queen, linens and more)
