    MoMA Store (Orlando)

     
    (Orlando) Florida - Millenia Mall - Jan 02, 2009 After 12 years in Orlando, the MoMA Store (Museum Of Modern Art, New York City) is closing down. With a 75% discount on all the remaining stock, the merchandise was sold out in less than 3 hours, to the last one... IN AN ORDERLY RETREAT, the store manager dimmed the lights, disbanded the employees and faded into history...... looking for a new job. Orlando it's a busy tourist and economic region. The life cost is somehow 15% cheaper than in South Florida. But the region have been affected by the general economic crisis and financial downturn. This closing, along with other many stores and business are another sad reminder of the very special market conditions and the scary economy we facing. But what other alternative do we have? We have to overcome, do the best, and put a positive face to this bad moment! In less than six months, we will see a bright light at the end of this tunnel! This crisis will be over, soon! P.S. Good News: since Jan 1st, 2009, MoMA have a new director and CEO in the person of the Oxford-educated, British-born, (46 years old) Thomas Campbell. We wish him good luck in this top job.
