When possible I will try to include the location I shot the photo from. Photo taken at Minnesota State fair 2010
Take your camera with you every where that you go, so when opportunity knocks you are ready

One folder in my computer contains many images from this centuries changing business climate, unfortunately most are not good changes. some of the changes will make the surviving companies stronger and many changes have eliminated competition and this is not good for us the consumer. documenting these changes in photographs is a hobby of mine and every so often I will donate my images with descriptions to the local Historical Societies.
Denny Hecker went down with a splash, the faltering economy could not support a dealership built on credit, even though this empire's business was selling credit for cars and houses.
Circuit City closed leaving the door wide open for Best Buy and even Best Buy is having problems of same type, Walmart announced they were revamping all stores to compete in the electronics area.
Snyders, now only the franchise stores are left open, I will miss Snyders and the Union will too, they are the only Union Pharmacy store in the Twin Cities and if you are from this area, this is most likely where your prescriptions were filled over the years.
All that is left to say is wow, Tom Petters in prison really the company closed, after they bought fingerhut, Sun Country airlines they opened these wharehouse stores all on a imaginary business front sold to defrauded investors, every one lost in this deal.
