"Pennies make a difference in local economy.")
To the editor:
A response to the article about shopping locally
I totally agree with spending in Logan County, but you canít do
it if there is nowhere to go.
I work downtown on Sundays at a local establishment, and every
time I work there are strangers from out of town roaming around but
come in frustrated ícause there is nowhere to eat or shop.
Everything is closed on Sundays. Open the town up on Sundays. People
think itís a ghost town on Sundays. Except for bars there is nothing
Wal-Mart. Clothing is terrible for women, so we have to go out of
town. We need another store like a Shopko or a Target or something
else to compete with the almighty Wal-Mart.
[to top of second
column in this letter]
We need more food places. People have to go out of town to get
something different to eat other than fast food or Bonanza.
Hopefully a new mayor will be more interactive in getting
businesses and development in the area so we all can start staying
My biggest suggestion would be to open up the downtown more on
Sundays. You will get people to come.
