Can't find a thread to put this in other than the Supermercado or Hyatt Theatre or Arnie's fire.

The neon place is shuttering.

Owner and founder Ian Macartney said you only need to look at today's largely neon-free commercial corridors to know why the business is closing.

"I got into it in the '70s and '80s," he said. "Now it is almost completely gone. It is akin to being a buggy whip maker." ...

Many neon signs used today are either mass produced at Chinese factories or are only neon-like signs that use fluorescent or LED lighting.
