Google bought youtube though…Look up Yahoo’s fuckups over the last decade or two. Could’ve bought Google for a steal, and hence YouTube would’ve been theirs. Got offered a cut of Microsoft in some deal knocked it back. There’s more too, fuckup after fuckup.
Classic example of how to turn a big business into a small business.
Man I must be old. I know all of them except Go-Lo. It happening all the time know. So many companies we grew up with are gone.Sorry I'm not sure why it didn't work - just fixed the link.

- Go-Lo (I used to work there lol)
- Grace Bros (before rebranding to Myer)
- Tandy Electronics (WOWSERS!)
Franklins I grew up with. They occasionally sold random things like Aldi too. Not a lot, but I’m pretty sure that’s where I got a pair of Mohamed Ali boxing gloves. They were a good cheap supermarket.Franklins was awesome

I don’t remember that place but I remember another business that the guy out the front was always saying on the loud speaker too ‘we’re closing down, everything just go’ they were still there for about the 2 year period after like your talking about, but it was a budget discount goods store. In the end I just wished they pissed off.What about “stacks” they had cheap tennis balls and tried to push Sergio tergcini tennis rackets..
They were closing down forever, one week to go, 6 days, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.5, 1....extended one more week!! Went for 2 years like that
