'Fixture of Dupont Retail to Close'

Dupont continues to price the old stores out. Hopefully she can relocate in town, and stay for another 40yrs. It is easy to say that since she has ben there so long, she deserves to stay in that spot, but the market has little sympathy. If she does have loyal customers, they will stick with her; but in a popular spot like Dupont you need to aggressively grow your business, and not just do it to get by.
