Oh the Humanity!

Sears/K-Mart, Eddie Bauer, even the venerable Wedgewood, and I hear Borders is on the short list of doom, but dear God not Starbucks, too!

I don't know. Maybe this will be the decade of the death of the chain, the withering away of the retail strip, and the rebirth of the locally-owned neighborhood store. After all, people will still need coffee, just not at eight bucks a cup. People will still need books, just not the unsustainable profit expectations of Wall Street.
