10 Places That Will Not Exist in 20 Years

9. Mom and Pop Stores

Big stores such as Walmart and Petco have been pushing out the “little guy” for years. A few have held strong, but eventually the lack of profit margin will shut the doors of the final “mom and pop” establishments. Whether it’s the local hardware store, “shoe guy” or pet store, it’s impossible to compete with chains that buy in bulk, can afford to advertise more and offer products much cheaper (due to buying bulk). If you enjoy walking into your local grocery where everyone knows your name I suggest you frequent it often because they will not be around forever.
