Regardless of Mayor Ron Harding’s political theater yesterday in his “State of the City Address” to the approximately 100 Yelm Chamber of Commerce members in attendance, a major mufti-national chain is closing a high-profile, long-time presence and storefront in Yelm –
Blockbuster Video is having a Yelm-store-only closing sale.
Blockbuster has announced a sale where “everything must go.”
As Mayor Harding gave his perfunctory upbeat State of the City Address yesterday, many businesses here are hurting. Yet, if he would just go out and talk to local business owners about their challenges and then share that truth with his constituents, he would be a hero here!
However, Harding is a political “junkie” bent on a career, now throwing his bags in with the Republican Party.
