Yahoo! News - Vermont Named Among Most Endangered Places. I can attest to this as my hometown stores have pretty much gone out of business due to "category killer" type stores that have sprung up in the next town over. It was very sad to go into the neighborhood bookstore where I had shopped all of my life and seeing most of the shelves empty because the owner could no longer compete. As much as I appreciate "category killers" for their low prices, I also have a strong sense of nostalgia and feeling for the mom-and-pop shops that go out of business.
