Tough Economy – Tough Businesses

McDonald’s is doing well, despite the tough economy. Meanwhile, Starbucks is way down in sales, and (GASP!!!) Circuit City (The Source) has filed for Bankruptcy Protection. (Best Buy is great, but the Circuit City store was walking distance from me in Hamilton, and had more neat little gizmos and gadgets)

In the airs above us, Air Canada has been feeling the pinch much more than WestJet, and Grandpa Richard is not surprised. I personally use WestJet more frequently than Air Canada, although my last several flights had no decent jokes from the WestJet crew.
