The internet has driven some

Filed under:General — eric @ 9:57 am

The internet has driven some old companies out of business. Many new dot-coms haven’t been able to keep up the pace and have closed their doors. And then there’s the 200 year old G.H. Bent company. “Since this internet thing, it’s exploded,” says the company’s 71 year old retired former owner. Business has been booming as of late. The product? Hardtack. Beloved by soldiers for over 100 years, now re-enactors are rushing out to try the real thing. And by “beloved” I mean “despised”. But it’s all the rage now, I guess.
