    lots of places are going out of business. i lost several well established suppliers at my job.

    i dont think people realize that everything is relative and it's not just about restaurants losing their waitresses

    I'm of two minds on this one - since one of my friends has his own guitar shop and that's where my son takes lessons it means he might be able to sell more product. On the other hand GC has a wide selection at a relatively decent price.

    Chapter 11 means they are going to try to come back which is good but they may end up screwing over employees and vendors in the process.

    It'll be interesting to see how they come out of it.

    Sorry to hear that MRO. It must be stressful.

    i dont think people realize that everything is relative and it's not just ab restaurants losing their waitresses

    Yea what's up with that? Why is the media so hung up on the resaurants? I guess people with money don't know how to cook for themselves. I can't afford to eat out so I could care less what restaraunt is going under. I want to know how Welding shops and machine shops are doing. Why don't they report that?

    the restaurant and bar shit is good scare tactics. it makes everyone think 'whoa , this affects me' because they eat out once in a while.

    manufacturing is doing horrible. the only businesses which are taking off are food manufacturers. i'm trying to work at one now. they made twice the amount of money at covid.

    one of those suppliers i talked about was around since the 1940s. they had plenty of customers. they didnt have a damn one since april. we were their last customer before closing the doors. they were a metal plating and polishing company.

    Good old CNN. I didn't know that COVID could infect a retail sector. Maybe it's the lockdowns!

    It's because the elites are much less involved in manufacturing or the supply-chain. They tend to work in the service sector: media, finance, law, medicine, consulting, etc... they're only visibly seeing their favourite resturants close down and aren't aware that it's a much wider problem.

    I don't know how it works out of here, but in Spain, restaurants and bars are one of
    the biggest sectors of our economy.

    We have built our country around tourism and so a lot of what our economic engine has
    developed around is sucking drunk englishmen out of their money.

    We have some other industries but, for the most part, they pale in comparison when it
    comes to size. I think only the car exports play in the same league.

    I live in a tourist area myself. We definitely feel it first with this stuff. That's why you don't load up on coastal regions in BRE when the trouble eventually comes.

    A large percentage of people in my area are in the service industry, or have family in restaurant and hospitality jobs. As good office and manufacturing jobs leave, more and more tourism and hospitality centered businesses are appearing. When these families feel the hurt from lack of funds, it affects the entire community. Many service jobs positions are the gatewway to the working world for younger people.

    You haven't seen the way it infects people's brains? Of course it can infect an entire financial sector. Abstract concepts are people with rights too.
