US Retail Has To Be Getting Crushed
Anyone else noticing the lack of shoppers? It's crazy to think back just a few years ago the stores would be packed.

Also sad to see shopping areas with buildings empty some falling apart.

That might explain some of it. But I don't think it makes sense to shop online for everything. Shipping can cost more than taxes
