I'm tired, so this will be my last thread tonight (sound of applause). But someone, please humor me. Is it just me, or are there way too many stores, selling the same shit, located very near each other, for it hard to imagine a scenario where 1/2 of these places could go bye-bye where they would not be missed in the least? Is retail saturation beyond the realm of absurdity, or am I am absurd/missing something? Thanks for indulging my random, late night curiosities. *P.S. - How do many of these places stay in business for so long??? And is it true that French women don't shave their armpits? And what is the deal with all the kids with peanut allergies lately - no one had peanut allergies when I was a kid?
