The economy. Plant closings and job losses are some of the bigger signs that all is not well, but what about the little signs?
- Saturday post-Black Friday shopping: A normal, slightly busy day. Hardly anyone was in Target, but you couldn’t get near the registers at Michael’s. (Are people making Christmas gifts instead of buying?)
- Automobile Row: Most dealerships are still open, but the car transporter trucks — which used to be parked on the side of West Genesee Street a few days a week — are nowhere to be seen.
- Parking ticketing growing more aggressive (as at Ra-Lin’s).
Do you notice any little signs of change in the air?
