We have tough times in America these days! A lot of people out of work and a lot of people still losing their homes. Those that can manage are clamping the billfolds shut to simply maintain. Food costs have skyrocketed completely unchecked since the economy slid off the scale. You buy oranges for 89 cents EACH now, not 89 cents/lb. A bag of "ice" is 2.50 at convenience stores. I mean, C'mon! Are the retailers really this greedy?
Don't blame lack of Christmas sales on cold weather! If the people had the money to spend, a little chill won't hold them back. Notice the rash of restaurant closings? Prepare for more of the same and understand that the reason isn't location, not the cold, not the heat, not Afganistan, not Korea. The people simply have no money in their pockets, except for those that don't do and those that live here illegally and tax free.
Think about it!
