If you live in a decent sized town, sooner or later you know some stores have closed. I refer to national brands like those found malls or shopping strips. In some cases the anchor store closes and that causes a wripple effect and more and more close or move. This in turn cause the "big box store" problem for municipalities to find new buyers or use tax dollars to somehow make better use or provide some dividend to the community.
In the link it seems even more stores are closing due to the economic times. Please notice the numbers that even one national chain has to close. What a waste, IMHO but again what a shame. While some shops/stores were hot commodities it seems, they can only await less patronage as time goes by. -----Willy
