It's a new age in the world we live in, and it seems more and more that the brick-and-mortar businesses you pass daily, aren't lasting any longer. It seems that we are seeing tons of stores close their doors all around.

With tons of online shopping services, those stores on each corner are becoming more and more obsolete. Online retail giants like Amazon, eBay, and even social media like TikTok and Facebook have shifted into an online selling front, leaving the stores on the streets with an uncertain future.
