Many small businesses have already been killed! What some people have spent their life building has been destroyed by mandated shutdowns. How does anyone recover from financial ruin? Those on the other end of the age spectrum typically have far less time to rebuild. 

There is no real genius here Annette Lawrence , Palm Harbor, FL 727-420-4041 - the realities of the impact of COVID and government overreach is clear for those willing to open their eyes and see it. 

Nike can kiss my backside. Their product is 💩 and so are the Hollywood and Sport Elites that are paid Millions to market the products.

Annette,

No, I do not think it will kill affiliates, and to really answer the retail question something we know about would take my writing a book...A

    DRACONIAN GOVERNMENT MANDATES have decimated Middle Class America and small businesses and restaurants.   

     The businesses that are gone are gone.  If Government doesn't back off right now, nothing will be left.

It is such a sad state of affairs, Annette and I really don't think those who CAN do something are smart enough to actually do what needs to be done. 

I have literally cried over local businesses who I tried very early on, to support during this crisis. With the total shut-down, they lost their businesses. They had decades of ownership in these businesses that their parents and their grandparents had built. The Great Hoax tore them down and sadly, the majority of the world remains clueless.

Officially tomorrow, my state will be on curfew between the hours of 10PM and 5AM. Not that I would go anywhere during those hours anyway but, a friend made a great point yesterday about this. "I guess Rona is more contagious during those hours!" Sad.

What is frightening is this situation could not have been foretold or avoided and it is way outside of Business and Real Estate dynamics. Furthermore, the solution is in the hands of irresponsible, indifferent and neglegient people in power who objectively speaking are the real problem not covid....

It has to be about great service form local companies and a conviction from local customers to purchase from local companies.  These companies hire local, pay local taxes, pay local rents and contribute to community.  They really need to be supported, especially here in CA when they are being shut down at their most profitable time of the year.

It is a time of change, some will adapt, some will blame others and fail.

Nothing new here, just that way the world evolves.
