My neighborhood and general city saw a lot of dealers close while I was in the Great Recession.
Some streets resembled a ghost town, and only a few restaurants managed to survive.
Anyone left in this area had to grapple with a permanently altered community and company landscape. It was rough seeing people you knew and appreciate losing the dealers that they had worked so hard for so several years to accumulate. Very few people predicted the market crash in 2008, but even fewer people faced no adversity from its wide reaching effects and implications. Thankfully our neighborhood is finally starting to turn around. In the last year we have seen residential and commercial development in numerous key areas, and it’s picking up more steam in 2021. For instance, there’s a brand modern CBD shop that just opened in a strip mall down the street from our house. It used to be a vaping store with a vape lounge, but the previous owner closed the company down and sold the space to the man who turned it into a CBD and hemp store. This CBD shop has hemp flower products, CBD oil, capsules, tinctures, vaporizer cartridges, and concentrates. If you don’t have a relaxing CBD corporation on the internet, these local CBD stores are the next best thing. The one by our house also gives out discount cards that you can use whenever you shop there. Every purchase gives you one more hole-punch towards a 35% off coupon that can be used for your entire purchase at the CBD store. I’m just one purchase away from getting our coupon.
