So Elon Musk seems to be trying his absolute hardest to try to run Twitter into the ground... and possibly take Tesla down with it. But if Twitter is going to fail, it would just be the latest entry in a long string of companies that are no longer with us. Our theme this week is companies that no longer exist. This can either be through bankruptcy/going out of business, or through other means, such as being acquired by a larger company and then being absorbed into that company instead of continuing under its own identity. Any kind of company is OK: retail, financial, manufacturing, restaurants, whatever you like! Standard avatar rules apply: your entries must be no larger than 200 x 200 pixels, and 1 MB. Entries must be SFW, and no media images are allowed. (News and documentary sources are OK.) Each person may enter up to three images, and the contest will be open for about a week or so. It's also OK for just a country's branch/subsidiary of a company to have gone under, even if the parent company survives. For example, my first entry: Target Canada, which infamously failed fast and failed hard when Target tried to expand their operations into this country. (As an aside: if you're interested at all, this is a really good article on the failure of Target Canada. It's a longer read, but it provides great insight into all the different things that went wrong, causing this launch to be disaster of such epic proportions that it is basically a case study of how not to expand into a new market. The Last Days of Target: The untold tale of Target Canada's difficult birth, tough life and brutal death ) I know it's a bit of an unusual topic; I'm just trying to come up with things we haven't done before. Hopefully the thread doesn't end up becoming a graveyard itself. Have fun!
