I don't know how it works, nor do I feign the knowledge, but if DISH won, would they be on the hook for the store leases? If so, I don't see all the stores surviving, but in all honesty, DISH is probably the best shot many stores have at staying open at all. Icahn sure as hell won't do it, and most other bidders seem interested in the liquidation part.

Ok so the auction continues today and according to what I've read it will be public. We should be hearing news throughout the day about it.

I got my fingers crossed for Dish or SK Telecom. Those two would keep our stores open. Anyone else will liquidate.

If you don't reward your employees for selling well than you don't get to punish them at all when they don't.
That's the only way it will work, dirext tv paid us good commision and all we had to do was seel the customer a package for free and they call them for everything else. I enjoyed making $10 a sell for that.

When does this end? Will we know by the end of the day or can this carry on for days?
