Last week: “Where am I going to get my peppered bacon” and “let’s start a petition” were two of the comments that I read in the story about Lucky’s Supermarkets closings in South Florida this past couple weeks. As a business owner, I was disappointed in the lack of understanding by the general public of how private businesses work. Businesses don’t owe the public anything. They exist to sell a product or provide a service that generates profit. Maybe they have a great culture and performance community service, but that’s ancillary. I’m scared about the potential election results with comments like these.
