Bottom line us that Utica is a terrible market for the product they were selling. People here can't afford to eat let alone pony up to $2k to $4k that the gear he was selling commanded. Utica's a $200-$500 guitar market. Cheap Fender Squiers and the rest of the crap gear Big Apple pushes. Why keep spending money on a shop that locals can't afford to buy from. If they were truly arrogant they'd have kept dumping money it, hell Joe could easily afford to. Sometimes it's just smart to cut your losses and move on. Good decision on their part. Anywhere else than Utica and the store would have thrived.

In business you cannot be afraid to fail. It might not work out the way you want it to but if you are passionate about it, have a good product or service and have done your due diligence why not give it a try. If it doesn't work so what? No harm done, you just found a way that it doesn't work so well. Cut your losses and move on. Of the 3000 or so new businesses that open in our area each year most close within a year. It's a risky venture especially in this area where most people are shopping at Walmart and Target. Not the right spot for this business, maybe they just " took a shot" to see if it would fly. By the way, there is no guarantee of success even if all your research says it should be that way. Nobody's bragging about this, knucklehead, we just like arguing with you.
