retail: time to close the doors

NYC just passed a bill requiring retail chain stores to close the door if the A/C is on. Seems pretty logical. But if they close their doors, how will they pump the annoying Abercrombie music out onto the streets?

This is an interesting trend in the greening of retail. Architects, retailers and merchandisers should pay attention. Window displays and doors will have to welcome visitors in new ways - while being closed. Maybe doormen will come back. And elevator button dudes. The Greeter industry. Love it.
