Younkers closure won't make a national ripple

posted by 1430 KASI -

An Iowa State University economist says the demise of Younkers is just the latest example of a rapidly changing retail climate.  David Swenson says while Younkers' closure is a big deal in Iowa, it's likely to go all-but unnoticed in the larger retail market where people will simply find other places to shop.  He says he has concern for displaced Younkers workers in smaller towns who are likely to have a harder time finding similar jobs than those who will be out of work in bigger cities.
