It is NOT the rent they pay. I personally know enough business owners in Lake Sumter and Spanish Springs to say that. The rent is no higher when they quit than it was the day they signed their lease(s). The rent for commercial space in TV is no more expensive than any other commercial location such as malls or Rolling Acres area.

The rent is an excuse some use as the reason for leaving. The Grateful Dog went from a huge space in TV to a smaller space in TV to a location outside TV and still wound up closing shop.

Whiskey Creek was a welcome steak house here in LSL and they blew it...very poor customer service and bad food.

The rent is a known cost of doing business when signing up to open a business in TV locations.

I am not defending TV position...only that the businesses tha have an appropriate business plan...good/excellent customer service...reasonable customer pricing...a product TV residents like...= a growing business.

Don't ask the ones leaving or closing up. Ask the ones that are still here after the many years since they opened.
