You ever been to Manhattan?

To rent a storefront is retarded.

If you have a storefront in Manhattan and another one in the Bronx you are not struggling even if you’re in rundown Harlem.

Idk if this person is an immigrant, but imagine going to another country and having 2 storefronts in the most expensive city in the world.
I live here so I know what I'm asking ...You seem to believe she's balling due to having what she has and I'm just saying

"You don't really KNOW what she's got"

My grandfather was an immigrant who owned a shop/building on Nostrand...
sh*t cost plenty to keep up and sustain his family...

In the end? After owning that and a home in the 90's
since the late 50's...
He sold his sh*t and moved out of NYC because it cost to keep them running ...
Heating oil and keeping up with inventory,maintenance is a bi*ch...

I'm sure that lady doesn't miss meals but I definitely know it isn't easy trying to sustain one let alone two businesses and hemorrhage money from what's supposed to be profit...

I've even worked for a retail auditor before cuz I was trying to work every which way but crooked to stay out of the can...

Counted 5000 toothbrushes in a simple 4'x4' bin with a depth of 12"...

They were 99cents each...

Those tiny items add up Doggy

So if you think about the volume of bags of $1.59 Doritos out of a case of say 64...
They pay about $42.30 a case...
Make a profit of $59.46 "IF" they sell them all...This is what I'm getting at...You can't profit when whatever else you sell is just to replenish...

The law is on the criminal side. Stealing more than the ticket itself. Call it capitalism.

Better make a prepay app or take call in orders where the customer orders and pays online then comes by 15 mins later to pick up.

Limit the amount of people who can enter at a time.

Refundable deposit to enter, get it back on your way out.

Gotta so sum, put on your thinking cap and get creative or lose it all to some low lives.
you must not live in NYC... theres no way you can limit the people that come in ive only seen that when theres a corner store next to a school with a bunch of kids coming at once. Imagine telling an adult to wait to come into a convivence store what an inconvenience

I hate how no one is blaming n*ggas. Itís like no one wants to say it. Black people are the minority and n*ggas are taking over.

The corner stores by me are mostly peaceful. But if you walk up to 145th, you see mad n*ggas just hanging out there all day with Jordanís on. Smoking weed, no fu*king job. Just chilling.

Even some months ago on edgecomb, a bodega worker stabbed one of them in the neck and k*lled him. Luckily he wasnít charged. Something needs to be done

I don't live in NYC but all you need is the thing that allows you to buzz people in. Bunch of people pop up don't open the door. Or lock it down during after school hours.... or pay an off duty cop to park in front of the store. No one answer
