The pros and cons of an in-store credit card

Many shoppers in Bradley County have been offered a credit card at the check-out counter of a discount store, super market or other retailer. The offer seems almost too good to be true - no credit check, instant credit of $500 or more, and low interest rates. Like most things that appear to be too good to be true, an in-store credit card may also be too good to be true. Before accepting another dollop of credit card debt, a person should carefully consider both the advantages and disadvantages of an in-store credit card.

Considerations in choosing bankruptcy

No one in Tennessee plans to end up bankrupt, but unexpected life events, such as illness, divorce or loss of a job, may force individuals to seek the protection of federal bankruptcy laws. While bankruptcy is often perceived to create a social stigma, it may be a better choice than persevering under a heavy debt load.

Gibson seeks bankruptcy protection using pre-negotiated plan

After months of negotiations with creditors, Gibson Brands, Inc., the Nashville-based maker of legendary Gibson guitars, has filed a petition under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. The filing was accompanied by a plan of reorganization that had already been negotiated with the company's creditors. The plan offers lessons for both large and small companies considering a business bankruptcy.

Car dealer bankruptcy clouded by allegations of fraud

The bankruptcy process depends in many ways on cooperation between the debtor and its creditors to resolve issues about asset value, existing debts and the history of the business before the petition is filed. When the parties cannot reach agreement, or when the disagreements become particularly intense, the bankruptcy court often takes a more active role in monitoring the parties' behavior. The commercial bankruptcy of Auto Masters, a group of used car lots in and around Nashville, has recently taken such a turn.
