6 things small business owners said today in Tampa



According to the Tampa Bay Times' Susan Thurston:

1. "Would you really bother going through an armed guard just to get a sandwich?''

2. "Don't ever bring this here again. We're ready to go but there's no one here. It's brutal.''

3. "All our regular customers have been scared away. There's no one downtown."

4. "We're hurting terribly. It's painfully disappointing.''

5. "I hope this does something for Tampa, because it's not doing anything for me."

6. "I've been waiting for this for six months. I thought it was going to be great. But it has been a disaster.''

And one thing Al Austin said.
