Is it just me, or have you noticed this void of commerce around you too?
This used to be the area's K-Mart. This parking lot was usually filled with cars, and people would be coming and going at all hours.

This is the Mongolian Grill restaurant in our town. It's our favorite local restaurant and we go there often -- though less often lately, both due to my injury and to the economy. It's not unusual to have to wait for a table, even on a weeknight.
How has the changing economy affected things in your town?
