The mighty engine of commerce

The Recession evidently was not invited to the so-called Natick Collection – our recently upgraded local luxury condo/upscale shopping behemoth – Saturday night. At 5:30 the PD Chang’s already had a two-hour-plus wait. The Cheesecake Factory was virtually unapproachable. The gerrymandered parking lots (specialists in obstructed sight lines since 2007!) nearly impassable.

America shops on.
