Coming emptiness--updated

Passing through downtown this morning, I noticed a couple of new "For Rent" signs. The first was in the window of Land Surveying Services, which is two or three doors down the street from Clauss Bakery. I do not know what the story is here. (Update--see the first comment.)
 
A bit further down the block, there is a For Rent sign in window of Sister Act beauty salon. I had heard that they were planning to move to the Laundry Room building on Drexel Drive.
 
I do not recall the For-Sale sign in the Old Horton Building. Is that new?

Update: I found the picture below that I took about a week earlier. So the For-Sale sign is very recent.
(Yes, I do take a lot of pictures.)

I still feel sad when I see empty store fronts in Rensselaer or anywhere in fact.
