Six Subways? Of all the cool stuff we don't have, we're getting a sixth Subway? Subway is everywhere. Literally, everywhere. I can't spit without hitting a Subway. There's a subway, what, like 4 miles up Route 11 by Food Lion?

They still don't tessellate their cheese, like they're supposed to. Triangles should not be overlapping. And I miss the old V-cut, remember that? You know what else I miss? Lunch meats that don't look they were a liquid at some point.

I think "mmmbeef" sums it up perfectly.... not that Jerry's was overpriced and low quality (they were, but that's not the point). That Chambersburg people want cheap food. Cheap, cheap, cheap. You people wouldn't know quality if it sat on your lap and peed on your trousers. That's why Ryan's is somehow one of the areas busiest restaurants. What the what people?

What we NEED in that spot is a State Store. Those of us who have the unfortunate displeasure of living in Greene Township (and I say that tongue-in-cheek because I LIKE Greene Township), we have to drive ALL THE WAY across town just to buy a bottle of wine. What gives?? There should be a wine & spirits store near every grocery store since PA has a socialistic monopoly on alcohol sales and Greene Township is DRY.

But no, we get yet another Subway. That's literally the last thing I would have wanted there. There's no need for a Subway, there is a Subway right up the road.

Ugh.

You can please some of the people some of the time.
You can please some of the people all the time,
but you can't please all the people all the time.
I am glad a business is going in that location rather than sitting empty !
Best Wishes !

So... Eff, tell us what you really think about Subway.

The brand launched one of the most successful ad campaigns behind Coke/Pepsi and Budweiser. The latter features hot young women in various situations with guys who look like they're having the time of their lives. Subway commercials have convinced the public that they can eat a 12 inch mega sub, with all of the fixings, and still lose weight. Throw in those delicious cookies, a bag of crunchy chips and a 32oz sugar drink and man, the weight will come rushing off the arse.
Companies generally don't look around and poll the community to ask what you need. Instead, they see an opportunity to profit and go for it.(I grew up down South and there was a 7-Eleven every two feet. Slurpees were the national drink).
The thing we all have to realize is that businesses aim to be profitable. When you can't sale - bail.
People in this area generally put any extra income into their homes instead of $12 gourmet burgers or $50 shirts. I know plenty of people here with six-figure incomes who drive Hondas, Buicks or Toyotas instead of the luxury brands you'd see in the city. There's nothing wrong with being frugal country folks.

I never said there was and you can't make assumptions about me - if you saw my car, you'd understand ;)

Although, since I'm under the age of 72, I don't drive a Buick... but there are a lot of those around here!

I'm not putting down frugal living, not by a long shot. But people make nasty, backhanded comments without any sort of context. At least I provide context... I don't go out eating steak and lobster every weekend. I cook! Is it so bad that I hold restaurants to a high standard? I don't think so...

I believe in the saying - if you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got.

I like something new, I like to see the progress of this sometimes repressed area. I'm not saying I don't like it here, I like it here a lot. I don't live in the city. But maybe I'm in the minority because I like to see something different once in a while.

This area is sometimes anti-fun stick-in-the-mud. Boo me for trying to not be....

Actually Effington, the Subway formula is to overlap the cheeses, not tessellate as you say. Believe it or not, there is a whole formula on what ingredients are placed where. And just to play Devil's Advocate a little more, isn't there a state store just 4 miles away over on Wayne Ave?

Point 1 - See Article: http://bit.ly/asUHgo "Subway Finally Agrees to Tesselate Cheese"

Point 2 - I think that Wayne Ave might be more than 4 miles (via Route 11) from Norland Ave, but I see your point. My point is for those of us who live up in Greene Township - which is dry. We still have to drive to get to Norland, but that's right on the borough side of the township line and is the last possible convenient location for us Greene residents to buy wine and spirits. Having a state store there would benefit all of us unfortunate to live in "dry country." With no state store even on the north end of the borough, we all have to travel down to Wayne Ave.

Just saying, it would be convenient and profitable.

And... I stand corrected - the Norland Ave Giant is 3 miles from the Wayne Ave Giant via Walker Rd/Stouffer Ave.

The difference of course is time - that's a a sloooow 3 miles.

My other point is that if Giant is compelled to believe that having two stores 4 miles from each other is profitable, why wouldn't Wine & Spirits do the same thing?

Well, one reason is because the PALCB Wine & Spirits Shop has nothing to do with profits, demand, economics, free market or consumer convenience - and everything to do with, well, whatever the LCB feels like doing.

Isn't there another state store by Dunhams near the Walmart shopping center? I live in Greene and that is probably the closet if you hit Mower Rd.

Yeah, and I do go there sometimes but I hate fighting my way around Wal Mart and Route 30 - and from where I live, it's definitely not closer or at least takes longer to get to. Plus it's a pipsqueak store with a lousy selection and hours - plus they're closed on Sunday.

I wouldn't mind a small store by the Norland Giant though, I just would like to be able to pickup something when I go food shopping, like, well, just like everyone else in the country.

That is no good then! Without the Medina there is NO GAME ! I agree it is small and does have a limited selection. I am usually a beer guy, so my trips to the state store are minimal...usually around the holidays !

When you wife gives you the shopping list for Giant, it would be convenient to pick others goodies up at the same time.

Some of the old stiffs around here could use a little Medina in their glass!

It seems like you're lobbying for a Wine and Spirits Shoppe and a Chuck E Cheese. You could have lots of fun in the ball pool.

Can you taste the meat on your Subway? Have not been there in years but I always had to order the double meat option. You can see thru the meat, its that thinly sliced.
