When 'recession proof' business goes bust

We used to have businesses that most folks considered "recession proof." Businesses that offered goods or services that there would always be a need for.

Places like hair salons, car washes, or child care centers.

Sad to report, I'm seeing more vacant buildings where "recession proof" businesses used to be.

Allegedly, we pulled out of  recession months ago. But I go by what I see on the streets more than what I read in government stats.

The more "recession proof" businesses we see fail, the more people should question whether we're dealing with something deeper than recession.
