    I've been hearing about a lot of LFSs shutting down here lately.
    What kind of deals do they have going on Dustin?

    I hadnt heard that NewBee.
    I do know its hard on LFSs right now.I've spent a saturday or 2 helping at bermuda when there wasnt enough money come in to even pay for opening the door.When you've a $1500.00 a month light bill,payroll,and pay for orderes BEFORE they sale,its hard to stay a float.
    And when the economy takes a nose dive,the first thing people give up and cut back is a hobby.

    This is extremely scary, my best friends store isn't going too well either. It seems like there are a lot of people dropping out of the hobby.

    But this mo-fo is here to stay:Cheers:

    Yeah, too invested at this point to just drop out. Doesn't mean I'll be spending huge money on things right now though.
