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 else open.

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 in town.

My biggest suggestion would be to open up the downtown more on Sundays. You will get people to come.
