Walking down Myrtle Avenue, within in a half mile stretch, I saw ten different stores that had gone out of business.

And a couple of weeks ago, while we were going to the pharmacy, we saw a store being backed up and closed because it, too, went out of business. It was a family business, and the woman who worked the counter was wiping down the windows for the last time and crying as we passed by. I didn't have to wonder what she was crying about.
