Declining business after the I-35W tragedy


Everybody knows about the victims of the I-35W bridge collapse but not a lot of people know about the more indirect victims like the businesses in the neighboring areas that have to document a decline in their sales volume because of the bridge collapse. Some businesses don’t attribute slow business solely to the incident, while others calculate internal spending closely, while appealing to the customers they have been able to keep.
