Say goodbye to all the crap you don't need but love looking at on an airplane.
SkyMall -- America’s purveyor of decidedly useless items, such as the Basho the Sumo Wrestler Table and the NFL Shoe Wine Holder -- is officially filing for bankruptcy.
The in-flight catalog and its parent company Xhibit (not the "Pimp My Ride guy," unfortunately) plan to sell their assets, citing declining interest from customers and increased availability of the Internet on domestic flights. The retailer reportedly earned just $15.8 million in 2014, compared to $33.7 million in 2013. Thanks a lot, Internet. Now where are people supposed to buy the Crispy Corners brownie pan?
“With the increased use of electronic devices on planes, fewer people browsed the SkyMall in-flight catalog," Chief Executive Scott Wiley said in court filings.
