It's weird to go to a store, only to find it's empty and gone forever.  How did this happen?  How did we not know?  That's what happened to us yesterday when the husband needed some outdoor gear we headed over to what used to be Gander Mountain.  They had went bankrupt once but had made a comeback only to go out again or at least that store location gave it up.  

Then we had a furniture store not long ago go out of business (Art Van if your in Michigan).    We drove by the building it seemed like two months later and another furniture store had moved in.  The thing was it had signs up that it was going out of business already!  

Maybe we don't get out enough or maybe the times are changing and fast!  

Is this happening in your area?

Things have changed here too.
Our Gander Mountain and Matt Hagan stores went out of business last year. Lots of restaurants including Golden Corral and IHOP and frozen yogurts and cupcake places are gone.
We have some new stores opening now though. I had never heard of Chicken Salad Chick which seems like an odd restaurant. And we are getting an Earth Fare grocery store. Do you know anything about them?
Times have changed for sure.

We still have all those restaurants you talked about but no I haven't heard of the last two you mentioned. They sound good..I want them!

We've lost businesses too but our area has been in a steady boom for almost 20 yrs at least now & still growing. We're in the process of building a 6 lane freeway from the Mo state line south through Fayetteville. I think it's part of the major highway that's supposed to eventually connect Mexico & least that's what they were saying a few yrs ago. So even though we have lost some things (mainly restaurants), we never shut down completely in our state like other states did. Many employers cannot keep up with business & cannot find enough employees to run full production.

Our problem is prices have exploded. Building costs in our area have gone up 200 percent! Seriously. We paid quite a bit more than we had planned on our pump house last winter but I'm so glad it's not being build now. As we built, the prices changed almost every day so we scrambled to buy.

I'm reading a history book of our county right now & I think this is just typical. I'm amazed at how many good size towns used to exist around me that there is no evidence of at all now. When the railroads came through...towns completely dismantled & moved across the county. It's crazy to think about it. Give it enough time & our area will probably die back like many cities in the north. History has helped me keep the present circumstances in perspective. We really are just a very small blip in time & societies have grown & died many times over so the changes we see are really just the way things work. It's really helped me be more flexible & adapt with changes.

I've lost track of all that has shut down. We had a couple new ones open and then shut down 4 months later. We have even lost our Kroger's

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

Yep that's what's been happening here too. Sorry about your Kroger we lost our neighborhood Kroger maybe 4 or 5 years ago. It's not as easy to go to Kroger anymore so I don't go there as much now.

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

Good history lesson for your county. History is always good to know.
I bet the employees are sick and probably can't work. I hope this virus gets over soon. Here we have a problem getting a much needed part from China
I think lumber prices have just about skyrocketed every where. I'm glad there is nothing that we have to do too.

Oh my. I just went and looked at the Chicken Salad Chick menu. Not only some very wonderful sounding chicken salad but pimento cheese also - which is my personal favorite. I'm doing a pimento cheese tour one of these days when traveling is an option once again. There needs to be a Chicken Salad Chick in MI somewhere. Ann
