The new Yogurt Palooza will price by weight at $.49/oz. which comes to $7.84/#. I think that's a bit high for yogurt. People around here sure have a lot of money to burn.

Let's see...... Figure the rent,utilities,advertising,ins urance,equipment, licenses, taxes,salaries,base products,supplies,and oh yes,a return on the owners investment and what really is an honest selling price? Peace!

All that being said, and true, if $7.84/# is what it takes to make a profit, maybe it will be hard to sell enough volume. I admit to frequently being wrong in estimating what others are willing so spend. I have seen a number of small shops move out of Plymouth for lack of customers and profit. Still others linger on without much profit and hoping the future will be different.

Wow I cant believe how many abandoned building there are and so many business closed up and gone. Entire complex across from the landing! All along Lilley and main st. Stop spending money on streetscaping and compasses in the road and make Plymouth an attractive place for a business to stay and live.... We don't need any more BARS or Restaurants.

Its turned into pub crawl ville and Diva Days... refocus on why we can here!

And there are other day to day expenses we don't see that makes the botton line hard to maintain but good luck to the people who struggle day to day while their potential customers are suffering from the WalMartian disease.

Some towns around the country have revitalized their downtown area by turning them into an entertainment districts. Regular businesses cannot afford to compete with the "Big Box" mentality that so many people have lowered themselves to, so it's either bars and restaurants or abandoned buildings that become eyesores.The city fathers don't want the buildings torn down because the owners still pay taxes. Soooooooo what do you want?

Check out "My Hometown" by Bruce Springsteen..... That older song says so much about what is happening around the country today.

Great place, my kids love it. They can make their own and choose their own toppings. It fills a unique niche in plymouth that I think locals appreciate it.
