Will we see more card shops opening up?
A lot of people are comparing the current hobby with the crazy days of the late 1980s/early 1990s. Back then, at least in San Diego, it seemed like card shops were everywhere. They weren't all great shops, but they were open for the sole purpose of selling trading cards and associated items.
My question is this... Now that we are in the midst of another hobby boom, will more card shops begin to open up or are the benefits of online selling just too great to overcome? Or would we see more stores open if not for our current COVID situation?

I focus on autographed American Football League sets, Fleer & Topps, 1960-1969, and vintage lacrosse cards.
