Empty Storefront by rosiekerr

Empty Storefront

We walked around Union Station in downtown DC today and were struck by the number of businesses which had been thriving six months ago, to be reduced to this today. "Au Bon Pain" has met a similar fate, but the lines were not as good. ;)
Heartbreaking.

It's been such a contrast to be in the midst of nature, compared to the daily scenes in Chicago of the closed storefronts. Today we learned a two decade neighborhood favorite there has closed its doors for good.

How sad. I was in DC at the end of last year. I absolutely loved it there, this is a big contrast.

A sadly oft repeated story

We are seeing the same here in the UK especially at the railway stations. So few people travelling in the trains that they are not getting the footfall walking past these shops which were always busy!! Sad times everywhere!! Worse to come I think here with the unemployment figures growing daily. Many businesses are having to close permanently. This was always going to happen with more people shopping online but it has happened so much faster than people expected!!

I'm sad to see businesses closed. I think some of the ones that have stayed in business have really thought outside the box to redesign themselves.
