They've already closed here. CompUSA is gone. OfficeDepot is on it's way out.
I don't know how it is where "you" are, but, here in Michigan we are turning into one large ghost town. We have huge strip malls that were bustling, and now they are all empty. Businesses are gone, restaurants have shut down. Even Starbucks has left many of the malls.
Thank GOD the churches are still OPEN! :-)
Let's pray things improve in 2009.
