Quoted from o-din:
I've watched and read many posts about it and my consensus is most, not all, of Pinside is in complete denial on another economic disaster that could affect their hobby and turn it upside down from the full speed ahead of the last few years.
Even today, with all that's going on, many are still in denial.
While anything is possible I have seen with my very own eyes this week that people that have money are in fact, get ready for this, spending it! I have had my best week on ebay EVER and don’t sense it slowing at all. Could be a fluke but if anyone wants to sell any games I have on my want list, shoot me a PM!
I know there is little shown for a long term plan for our economy but people learn to adapt and fit into what consumers want... it seems that NO ONE wants to go to actual stores any more. Yeah, the US economy was always trending towards this anyway but this has just made it a reality. If a brick and mortar can’t survive without income for a month or longer, maybe it wasn’t in all that great demand any way.
Restaurants, bars, hair salons, ect. will come back when people are able to mingle again... I am ordering as much local carry out while still eating healthy. Anyway, I hope we can “be ok”... I am very hopeful but only time will tell.
