The Death of the Factory Outlet.

Predictions have to wait - went to the Factory Outlet for Christmas shopping and came back feeling like I visited a morgue. Three businesses with business licences operational past the first of the year are closing shop as of 31 December 2001. Four others listing - Everything must go 50% - 70% off.

The Factory Outlet is the Dead Zone and I know that Spit & Sleep is probably ready to check out. Whoever convinced the popular sleep shoppe to set up at the Dead Zone (factory outlet) will probably be publicly flogged. Oxnard City Officials need to do something before the whole outlet folds.....which leads to the first Prediction.

• Oxnard Factory Outlet factors funds and finds closing more profitable than remaining open.
