This morning’s letter to the T-P

Best thing about blogging is you can always publish your own letters, even if the paper won’t.  Here’s mine regarding the Walgreen’s story in the Money section (no, I don’t really read Money, but it caught my eye):

So Walgreen’s says it is “part of the community.”  Here’s how our “community” members think it’s appropriate to act: 

  • Abandon your stores and leave them boarded, contributing to the appearance of blight, while opening new stores just a couple blocks away.
  • Avoid competition by hanging onto boarded buildings for years rather than sell them to someone who might clean them up.
  • Ignore the express wishes of the neighborhood and historical construction standards to build in your own outdated style.

If Walgreen’s was really a part of our community, it would clean up its messes before making new ones.
