I applaud him for his efforts to right these retail ships. I think he is going succeed because he is not afraid to do the hard things, like closing stores and selling off real estate holdings. Slimming down is sometimes necessary before you bounce back, look at McDonalds (which in 2004 was $16 or so a share and now hovers at the $100 mark) and Starbucks. Hang in there Mr. Lampert!
