The small business just down the street from my house is suffering. A little family owned market, it depends on drive by traffic to survive. Problem is, the main road just got rerouted because of phenomenal growth in this area. Instantly, this small business owner saw a 90 percent drop off in business.
Now he’s in deep trouble — three months behind in his rent with business closure pending. His appeal to the county to help make it easy for customers to find his business hasn’t changed a thing. Looks like he’ll be gone soon.
I see this type of thing happening to small business owners every day.
