Great Depression II hits the Borg
Stopped by the Littleton Lowe's this afternoon, needing a can of wood stain. Place was nearly empty, more employees in red Lowe's jackets than customers. On regular days (back before the October crash) finding a counter person used to be hard. Not today, store was empty and the clerks are looking for things to do to keep busy. On the way home I eyeballed the Home Depot parking lot, and it was even emptier than the Lowe's parking lot.
