  1. And did we really NEED so many businesses selling the SAME type of product??

    I'll buy it here...No wait, I'll cross the street and buy it there...or maybe I'll walk down to the other corner and buy it There!

  2. Some retail stores just opened too many of their own stores, too close to each other, for any of them to turn a profit. Along with the big chains not looking at the communitiy they serve, they try to sell that area things they don't need or want. So, if retailers got a little fat, it is time to lose some extra weight. I hate to see jobs lost and companies go under but sometimes they just do it to themselves.
