You know what Margaret Thatcher said about socialism. She was 100% correct.
Even if it weren’t for Obanomics...the “Mom and Pop” stores are being forced out. And have been for some time.
I truly miss the family owned busineses in my tiny town. But they just couldn’t compete with the big box retailers in the neighboring larger towns. Heck! Sonic is putting the DQ out of business.
I think in four years all we will see is Home Depot, Dollar General and chain grocery stores. It might not even take four years.
Greedy Capitalistic b@st@rd one-percenters, getting rich for the past 146 years on the backs of the oppressed ordinary working stiff.
It’s just a damn shame that they couldn’t have stuck it out long enough to leave the business to the kids so that the government could have nailed them with a 50% death tax.
it’s only 4 employees this time.
But I think this shows that many businesses worked on very small margins and have now been into the red
Rimshot Joe Biden might have thought this was part of Barry’s “Small Business Saturday” so he headed over to Costco.
30 yrs ago, I lived in South Philly, unless the demographics change (u know what I mean), there is a hardware store at 5th and Porter called Bruskins Hardware. The very best hardware store I’ve ever been to. Unless the owner doesn’t have family to take over, I can’t imagine they’ll ever close.
PS, if you ever visit for a cheese steak you gotta stop at Bruskins. He always had great Alaskan Iditarod pics plus many other neat things.
