And they wonder why people are leaving Ohio..No assistance to help the small businesses is unreal.especially when 77000 manufacturing jobs eliminated for overseas and the trickle effect .We have a party, both sides in the White house that needs to pack it up and get business knowledge in it..but then when unemployment benefits ran out for most Ohioans (99ers)and have congress men and women answering for us, the people, and their cruel and stupid thinking is deplorable.(straight from one in ohio-wants us to look for jobs is why no approval-well where are they?)A shame to read this because these small shops are second homes to some same as your favorite pubs..God Bless you owners..

thank you

I LOVE Dunkin Donuts but they are all too fattening.
I buy their coffee though!
It's terrible that small businesses are not making it in this economy.
I had two small businesses and closed, and now I work for someone else part time. I love it!!!
Thank you Walmart..........NOT

I love this state, and I hate to see it slowly but surely dying. With every business closing, small and large, another reason to stay in Ohio goes away. Take a trip to Zanesville, Springfield, Canton, or most any small city in this state and see the future. It's very sad.

People are leaving Ohio because it is a crappy place to live and raise your children. Face the facts.

I wonder why they closed all the shops instead of just the ones not doing so well. I would have left the four good ones open. Just sounds kinda funny closing money makers because some others are not.

The 4 good ones probably kept them all going till the money was gone. Taxes take a HUGE chunk out of small businesses, it's very unfair. Payroll taxes are the worst.

It's working out quite well as a matter of fact. The stock market has come back and making money for anyone who is wise enough to invest. Unemployment is started to go down. Thr future is starting to look bright again, in spite of the damage that the Bush administration left.

Donut Connection had three stores in Stark County, too, and only one is still open. I'm sorry to see them close. It leaves a big hole.
:D
Didn't Donut Connection used to be called Mr. Donut?? My sister used to work at one MANY years ago. I wanted to work at one when I was just out of high school, but my Mom didn't want me to. She said it was too unsafe. I had to laugh!! I said, "MOM!! How CAN it be?? The cops are always there!!"
"A police officer pulls over a car for speeding and asks the driver to get out of the car. After looking the man over, the officer says, "Sir, your eyes are bloodshot. Have you been drinking??" The man was indignant, and replied, "Officer, you're eyes are glazed. Have you been eating donuts??"
:D
Yes, I love donut shop coffee -- double cream, please!! But it's too expensive to buy (man, have you SEEN the price of coffee?!?!)
What are your favorite donuts?? My kids love cream sticks -- iced or powdered sugared, they don't care. I love Boston Cream!!

I've been a regular for over 20 years. The donute shop was part of my home. I would talk with people about whats going on in the world and in the area. It was a place to be with friends. I'm not sure what I'm going to do now that its closed. It was a part of my life I can tell my grandson about. I will truly miss it. God bless everyone that lost their job. A sad time in Cleveland.

True that the market is going higher but much of that is attributed to the lower value of the dollar. So, what is your current purchasing power worth? As for the UE rate, you are incorrect. The proof is in what is called the U6. Look it up.
