Letter to the editor
Applause for your February 1 editorial, "Keep it Local." Millerton
cannot support two large supermarkets. A second will result in one
of the two eventually going dark, the kind of blight we have generally
been spared in our area. Jobs will migrate between the two stores but
there will be only insignificant long term net gain. You have
reported that local businessmen who run a fine market in Amenia are
looking to refresh the existing Grand Union facility. Common sense
says this would be a better outcome for the village as a whole.
This letter appeared in the February 15 issue of the paper.
