Retail is set to have a record year of closures, spurred by the shuttering of Toys 'R' Us, Sam's Club, Sears and Bon-Ton stores around the country, CNBC's Lauren Thomas reports. "The amount of retail space going dark in 2018 is on pace to break a record," says the report, citing CoStar, a real estate information firm. Over 90 million square feet has been announced as closing this year, on track to surpass the 105 million square feet that was vacated by retailers in 2017. What's your take on the demise of retail? Read the story below and comment.

We can eliminate our federal debt by 2030.

A year before we LEFT California our home, on paper, was worth $200K more than we sold it for.

Still the appreciation was off the charts.
