10 BRANDS THAT MAY DISAPPEAR IN 2011

24/7 Wall St. has created a list of brands that may disappear in 2011, some of them iconic American institutions.

According to 24/7 Wall St., updating their annual April report of brands would normally take a full year; however, the current economic climate has accelerated the process. The majority of brands on the first two lists have either gone, been acquired, or have filed for bankruptcy.

With a number of the brands on the December 2009 list either gone or on a short-term path to extinction, 24/7 Wall St. has put together the latest version of the Ten Brands That Will Disappear, or whose parent company will be sold or go into Chapter 11.

Making the Top 10 are:

• Reader’s Digest
• Blockbuster
• Dollar Thrifty Automative Group
• T-Mobile
• Moody’s Corp
• BP
• Radio Shack
• Zale Corp
• Merrill Lynch
• Kia Motors Corp
