Their lease was up and the rent was going to radically increase. It was just a business decision.

Huge bummer! Yeah, American businesses are in really bad shape! Thank the Lord we now have some hope again! Not in Hawaii & California, not yet, still deep in the blue shit...

I keep hearing about building owners raising rents and retail businesses closing down.

That’s what happened to Hawaiian Island:

Yeah, very sad! Things like art, poetry & surfing require robust economies & strong leadership ... everything else tends to kill them... very sad, but I am not losing hope. They’ll rebound eventually. Hawaii is beautiful. yesterday pic below.

Alas, our lives are too short to wait for rebounds...

Is Naish in financial trouble? I read that Kai Lenny is leaving Naish.
