• holidays and inflation

    No. The stores are trying to survive. I expect to see a good number of retailers (even big ones) going out of business early next year.

    major retailers are reporting more profit.
    i'm not going to include mom and pops because they are never doing well.

    Indeed but, since COVID, they *really* are not doing well -- if they are
    still even around.

    if they arent doing well then maybe it's time to give up the hobby.
    any mom and pop store i've seen in my entire lifetime has expensive older stock. hardwares stores are the worst. you get that shit AND you get a clown with an opinion.
