Friday Shuffle - Economic Woes Edition
I live in the shopping district of my city. There are all sorts of shops, boutiques, bakeries, restaurants, florists, pharmacies and kiosks at the bottom of the apartment buildings around where I live. There's even a new cabaret set to open in a couple of weeks.
I noticed yesterday as I got off at the streetcar stop in front of my building that one of the clothing stores - one that had opened six or eight months ago - was closed. Gone out of business. The shop was completely empty save the naked male and female mannequins in the shop windows.
The name of the shop? Nothing Else.
I have no idea how to run a retail business but it's my guess that naming it something upbeat and positive would be the way to go just in case that self-fulfilling prophecy thing has some merit to it.
Time are tough now for everyone. Good thing Bixente the iPod is a cheap date. Time to shuffle.
