Department Of Bad Timing (Press Release Div.)

Worried about when you'll actually get electricity? Have a house that's a water-clogged shell?

Don't worry! According to the most mis-timed PR release ever, FAO Schwarz is -- today -- announcing it is coming back to the Houston market in four locations, ready to serve all your needs for what it calls "luxury toys":

Exciting news...

Christmas is coming early in Houston! FAO Schwarz, the nation's leading family retail store is soon to arrive at four Macy's department stores in your city...Right in time for delightful holiday gifts, this "store-within-a-store" will carry luxury toys including plush stuffed animals, cars, trucks and trains, as well as other wonderful treats only available in FAO Schwarz stores. Holiday shopping will be four times as jolly this year!

Yeah, "four times as jolly" sounds about right. If we get power by then.
