The Atomic Boutique VS. Dying Historic Downtown Upland, CA
Posted on 06 August 2014
Just wanted to share my posting on Facebook today.....
So we were located in Historic Downtown Upland, CA. Yes the town is quiet all hours of the day but we still got by every week. We worked hard for your business each and every day. All of us at The Atomic Boutique appreciate our customers. We do miss our customers and the support from our customers.
If you visit Historic Downtown Upland you will see nothing but abandoned buildings and businesses that are closed because store owners do not feel they need to be open in order to make a dollar. It frustrates me every time I have to look down our street and see that most of the retail and food venues are closed.
The way I look at it, if you have a business and you are closed 70% of the week and then you come crying to us at our store expressing how bad business is, then CLOSE YOUR SHOP! Let business owners move in that want to make a living. Most of the business owners on the block just want things to fall on there lap. Owning a business is a 24 hour job. If you cannot handle that then you all need to move on and get a desk job. We need businesses that will attract customers and not discourage them.
Because of the situation downtown we decided to close our doors and strictly sell our goods on-line for now. Will we open another store location? Maybe. It still is an option for us. Until then follow us on-line at https://www.theatomicboutique.com
