It opened when she and her husband arrived from Brooklyn. To this person, the town center was based on this coffee shop because it was central to her experience there. The reality is that it was open for five years.

I agree that it's sad that small local businesses are going under but that's no excuse for bad writing.

"My family and I white-flighted from Brooklyn to a New Hampshire cow town and then biatched about it until we moved to a town with a cute coffee shop. How can I go on when the cute place that became the center of my pathetic existence goes out of business?"

Cool your bowels, chick. The place wasn't even there five years ago. It's not like the town failed to exist before some kuntry kute koffee shoppe opened. Maybe you need to move back to Brooklyn and STFU.

You know, for all the "Socialism is SATAN!!!!!!" talk, the capitalists sure seem to hate the fact that capitalism means there is a culling of the poorly run businesses that open opportunity for others. Airlines, Cruise ships, restaurants, etc. seem to be immune from the natural capitalist process. Why is that?
