Sincerely, a sell-out.
Summit County isn't hitting the numbers it was just three years ago. The pinch is being felt up here. My building had it's first foreclosure and I got to see a forced eviction by the sheriff this summer.

Businesses that haven't adapted are seeing numbers off by more than 40%.
