Re: [Killietalk] Nostalgia, et...now LFS industry evolution
This makes me think... Unusual I know!
There is a LFS here in Huntsville, AL that never has anything. Every
time I go in there the tanks are almost empty. They have no live
plants. They always say they will get a shipment on Tuesday and they
will be happy to special order anything I want... How do they survive?
They can't possibly sell enough to cover rent, let alone utilities or
other expenses. Other people I know that have gone in there say the
same thing. Some have even suggested that they are a front, or a tax
write off, for some illegal activity.
John in you know where.

I couldn't agree more Karen. I miss the real LFS, We have about two
ones in the Denver area and I do my best to support them.
But, I recall last year. I realized there were a few stores I'd never
so one Sunday I set out to visit them. What I saw was like an earlier
comment: dirty tanks, empty tanks, sickly stock, hoses running all over
floor, buckets all over the place.
Competition is tough out there and if you can't run a professional place
you're not going to last long (and they're gone already)
