LED takeover

Hi there...Ive read on the BBS for a few years now.I operate a wholesale shop in the interior of British Columbia and have done business here for the last 9 years after relocating from Vancouver BC.Within the last 8 months give or take the amount of tubes I bend has gone from 200-400/month to about 15-20...if Im lucky.I had a few small customers and 1 huge customer that required massive amounts of glass until last summer when they made a COMPLETE change over to LED...and seem to do almost no exposed neon anymore.Tubebender friends in the Vancouver region are also fighting over small amounts of glass.
Im preparing to get into other lines of work but I was wondering how many of you guys have been effected this much....or is this was/is a regional thing with western Canada??? I still see wanted ads on here for tubebenders every now and then and was wondering whats goin on everywhere else in North America???...Thanks alot,eh.
