      From Mz Tracy, thanks girlfriend!

      Got this from my sister. Wow this is sad!

      Just a heads up: if you tend to give gift cards around the holidays,
      you need to be careful that the cards will be honored after the
      holidays. Stores that are planning to close after Christmas are still
      selling the cards through the holidays even though the cards will/might
      be worthless January 1. There is no law preventing them from doing this.
      On the contrary, it is referred to as 'Bankruptcy Planning'. Below is a
      partial list of stores that you need to be cautious about.  

      Circuit City (filed Chapter 11)
      Ann Taylor- 117 stores nationwide closing
      Lane Bryant, Fashion Bug ,and Catherine's to close 150 stores nationwide
