Pat's Glass is closing because they have reached retirement age and WANT to retire. They have had many good years (25) in that location and appreciate all of their customers. Thank you El Dorado.
But the "Oh well" goober is so set on the fact that Atwoods and the Chinese Buffett has ran them out of town. Because she thinks economics works a certain way that nobody can figure out, nor can she explain. Maybe she won't be too stupid to comprehend your post. Thank you, Pat's Glass, for 25 wonderful years.

You mean there's other reasons businesses close in El Dorado besides competition and economic conditions? Imagine that!

Again, dumbass, have you talked to the owners to find this out? There are reasons why many businesses don't sell... They so so well that they don't have to! It can be expensive to sell a business in this day and age. Profits on such transactions are not always made. Bit you'd know this if you had any understanding of economics.

OR - like so many family-owned businesses, it was doing just fine for them, but not so well that another person would want to buy it. Lots of people own businesses so they can be their own boss and because they love what they do - not just so they can sell it for tons of money.

I guess one excuse is as good as another, but I don't think a profitable business would be hard to sell.

Just like the actual reason is better than the fabrication you just pulled out of your a$$.

why are you dead set on trying to make folks believe that Eldorado can handle more retail when businesses are closing left and right, you sound like those desperate snake oil salesmen at the chamber of commerce.

I never said that. I said that we should let the market take care of itself. You said we should create a star chamber that decides who gets to come in to town and who doesn't. My idea is free market. Yours is protectionism.

By the way, at least the folks at the Chamber are doing something. And for every business you say closed, I can come up with another one that opened. Our economy is doing OK. Maybe not great, but it's not horrible like you think it is.

yes, and for every new one that opens an old one is forced to close....time and time again..........this is not a healthy economy..........one day in the near future only the giants and big box stores will remain, very sad.

Only if the stores you think are so great don't find ways to compete. If they're competitive, they stay open. If not, they don't. Circle of life....

That's where you're wrong. Businesses are not "closing left and right." Until you discover reality and understand facts instead of the lies told to you or create yourself, you'll continue to live your life on misery and alone. Utterly alone.

So what - we should protect the stores on the square that close at 5:00 and don't open on weekends? Just because they've been here for awhile?

Hope you never become mayor. Attitudes like yours kill towns.
