K-VA-T is blocking competition for its store in VA right across the border. The lease they have is in WV...it is the only space we have for a store. I live in WV, and our city officials seem like they cannot do anything about this. It is really hurting our community. If anyone knows K-VA-T people there, please ask them to help us. Thank you.

What we do here in Washington County is to give them money. If you could pony up a couple of million dollars you might stand a chance of getting a store. You would probably also have to give them the land and promise not to tax them for 20 years or so but you will find them to be good neighbors and only charge a little more than Kroger. Too bad you are in West Virginia or you could get state money. Steve Smith has his own personal delegate here in Virginia.

Who cares about people and their depreciating house values. We blocked competition!
