We previously discussed all these restaurants that are closing because they don't have workers.
So now here's something else really weird happening in my area, several new restaurants and stores are opening up. Does that make any sense? I know that some may have had the train moving before Covid hit or as it hit but not all.
There is one that just opened about a month back. They aren't doing too hot because there aren't enough workers and supply shortages. Hard to sell things you don't have. Bad reviews all around. If it were one or two, that would be reasonable. I'm talking a lot more than that to a point where it really has me scratching my head. They aren't mom and pop restaurants or stores either. These companies do all kind of metrics and future projections... but, right now isn't it hard to predict where things are going?
So here's my questions. What is going on. Are these places just being overly optimistic hoping to tread water long enough for a good vaccine?
Is this just poor planning? Is this something else, like refugees are on the way to fill those spots?
Do you see this in your area?
I'm not talking just normal closures and openings/building like in normal times (pre 2020)
NOBODY WANTS TO WORK?!
