Sharper Image To Fade Away

I don’t remember if I ever bought anything at a Sharper Image, but I won’t have much time left to do it. ‘Cause they’re going out of business:

Store closing sales have just begun at all 86 Sharper Image® stores as part of a major transformation of the Sharper Image brand. Over $50 million of inventory is being sold.
Discounts of 20% to 40% are now being offered on all merchandise in all stores. Consumers will be able to take advantage of deep discounts and important savings on electronics and toys as well as products for the home, personal care, the office and travel.

Will you miss Sharper Image? Will anyone? Are there retail brands that are gone now that you miss?
