GOLDEN GHETTO RETAIL ENDURES?!?!

Selling to the middle-class who don't enjoy searching for bargains but instead prefer merchants offer a bit of booty-smooching customer service with their goods is the new hotness according to this hopeful "buy local" report:

Holiday Sales Falter But Specialty Shops Thrive In Johnson County, Kansas

Sales tax collections for the early part of this year's holiday season are down across Kansas, and that includes Johnson, Wyandotte and Douglas counties. But some local shops are having a great year, by selling experience as well as stuff. November sales taxes collections fell off 6% in Johnson County, and almost as much across Kansas.

I especially like shopping at Panty Sniffers R Us at Christmas on Johnson Drive. Brings back memories of growing up with three older sisters. =8^/
