BACK2THEFRESH (AP) We had the opportunity to speak with some of the South Philadelphia Businesses on South Street today, and according to some, business can always be better. Some say that the violence in Philadelphia Pa is the way it was in the 1980’s or possibly even worse because of gun violence. The gun laws aren’t as strict as they were in the 80’s, and businesses fear that it has taken a toll on business for the next 5 years. Hopefully Christmas shopping will bring a change.
