Oh, the Humanity!

I'm tellin' ya, sweet people, 1st & Lenora is suffering. Three months ago, Waterworks goes out of business. Now it's Shoefly's turn. They sold some very unattractive shoes and now they're leaving us. Take a look (apologies for the cell phone photography; my regular camera is on the blink):


Their departure means that there's no more retail in that poor, sad, squat three-story building on the northeast corner. When they're clothed in rags and running barefoot through the streets, what will we tell the children? That we allowed this place to close simply because it sold ugly shoes? Is that what we're going to tell them?? It is...? OK, just so we can get our stories straight.

Well, a fond goodbye to Shoefly. In business heaven, all shoes are beautiful.
