Snohomish and the Economy

Okay,,,,,,I'm a bit upset. YES the economy is down. Yes we, in Snohomish all wish it was a bit better, but I feel like between the media's Grim Reaper's and a few business folks (you know who you are), saying that Snohomish is becoming a ghost town. BULL-Doo-doo. People are coming here because they WANT nostalgia, they want individual service and acknowledgement, they don't want to head to the Mall or buy it off their computer, because they want to FEEL warm and cozy. At home. Let's stop the negativity and promote our uniqueness..........our charm. Our "retail therapy."

We've got new businesses coming into town, we've got current merchants moving to larger locations and some of us that work in some of the shops are doing well, in spite of the economy. If you're down a bit and a merchant? Suck it up, yes we are in tougher times, but show your creativity, your initiative and your resilience, not your doom and gloom. Work smarter, harder and most of all offer that small town charm and customer awareness that folks just don't get at the Mall or box stores. ......We're a destination town. A happy town, a small community and we have to focus on our strengths and individuality,,,,,,,NOT on the general economy.

(Stepping of my soapbox)
