Yelp data shows 60% of business closures due to the coronavirus pandemic are now permanent
quote:

Yelp on Wednesday released its latest Economic Average Report, revealing business closures across the U.S. are increasing as a result of the coronavirus pandemic's economic toll. 

As of Aug, 31, 163,735 businesses have indicated on Yelp that they have closed. That's down from the 180,000 that closed at the very beginning of the pandemic. However, it actually shows a 23% increase in the number of closures since mid-July.

In addition to monitoring closed businesses, Yelp also takes into account the businesses whose closures have become permanent. That number has steadily increased throughout the past six months, now reaching 97,966, representing 60% of closed businesses that won't be reopening.

"Overall, Yelp's data shows that business closures have continued to rise with a 34% increase in permanent closures since our last report in mid-July," Justin Norman, Yelp's vice president of data science, told CNBC.

I recall it was "just 2 weeks" "flatten the curve".

How many politicians have taken a pay cut?

Imagine thinking it still makes sense to keep half the world shut down at this point.

A popular string of bars that make up U St. (one of the more popular areas of DC) are about to close down at the end of October thanks to the Mayor running the city into the ground like Destroya in NOLA with her ridiculous restrictions and curfews. U St. will probably go back to being a shithole. It’s a really big blow to night life in DC. Moving later this year and will be laughing on my drive out of here but feel terrible for the owners of these bars/restaurants.

How many government employees of any type have taken a pay cut?

This is so horribly sad. Government overreach will have generational damage done to our economy. Children will go hungry, budget deficits will skyrocket, taxes will explode to cover them, then more people will not be able to make their bills.

None, things like pay cuts are for the lowly peasants.

My question is: what was the number of closurez over the same time period for the last couple of years. I know the numbers are worse this year, but businesses close all of the time.

Trump's economy. Tax cuts to the rich while the little guys go out of business.

We lost a great soul food place. Everything else in town has survived so far.

Hell, 100% of government employees in GSA are still working from home.
