The vicious circle of commerce

From time to time, I have been struck by how old some shopkeepers are. I suspect that, in some sectors of retailing, only people aged 65+, who receive the state pension, are able to survive in the job. If they were completely dependent on their work income, they wouldn't be able to make ends meet.
