Open Thread for Tuesday - Its Home Depot Time Again
First off - as I have been saying for a while - it looks like the anti-Home Depot unanimity we had been bamboozled with does not exist in Sunland-Tujunga. According to an LA Times article though the NIMBYs scream the loudest, not all the residents of this burg in the foothills hate big boxes and big houses. Too, the pro-capitalism forces in Sunland-Tujunga are starting to speak up on our blog. And this latest photo of a recent anti-Home Depot protest shows hardly a movement.
On the other hand, it looks like the market may very well be doing for the Sunland-Tujunga folks what they want government to do for them (which government should not be doing but that's another story) - Home Depot is going in the toilet. They're about to sell their lucrative maintenance supply business and management shake-ups hope to get the chain back on track.
Folks in Sunland-Tujunga say they want Target, Starbucks, somewhere to buy underwear, etc. Have they asked these stores to come? Where are they? Do they have plans to open stores in Sunland-Tujunga? At the same time, folks in Palmdale want sushi and pasta but it ain't happening yet. Of course, folks in hell want ice water too but that doesn't mean they're going to get it.
Blog away dum dums.
