List Rules These are companies you think will go out of business, not the ones you're just wanting to.

It's become a tradition to post annual predictions for which popular brands will cease to exist within the coming year. Failing brands are never in short supply, and some companies fail because they're just so popular that their competitors decide to buy them out and dismantle them. Other corporations are going out of business because of digital encroachment, losing traction due to shifting trends and expectations, and a few have made dire PR or management mistakes that just can't be corrected. Which popular brands are most likely to fail before 2015 ends? Hopefully none of your favorites... but you never can tell.
