In PF now. First thing I noticed is that traffic is not as bad as usual. Second thing I noticed is that a,llot of shops are closed. Yes, there some new things open, but traffic was very light on the arts and crafts loop too. Vendors there and waitresses in restaurants are telling us business is way off this summer. Vacancy signs are everywhere. But- prices on everything are UP. I love the area but I am worried about their long term survival. The Apple Barn inventory on the floor is about half what it used to be. If this country doesn't get a grip on the economy, I'm not sure where we are headed. Gat/PF is a good pulse on middle class vacationing. It's still a great place with many fun things to do. I hope it pulls through this slide. Some people I have talked to this week tell me they are leaving - their wages are stagnant and they are not being treated well. I'm glad I came here this week, We pumped a little into the economy here. LOL.
