"It used to be a real bustling place. Now it's just a lot of trucks coming through and no body stops."....all of that money spent on the downtown beautification project....yes, that is the reason I do not go downtown, and I avoid it at all costs. The trucks allowed to go through are slowly taking a toll. Let's not forget all of the undesirables that haunt and lurk in the quaint little alleys just around each corner. No wonder few businesses do well and end up jumping ship. I have driven through this little town since 1990 and nothing has changed except for the addition of a few Dr. Seuss trees. Good work City Council, the truckers love looking at this pretty little downtown area while they wait for the two traffic signals to change from red to green. That is why my taxes are so high, thank you.

That was my gmom store i use to love to come there and just look around the people that worked there were so very nice....the store will be missed...i really like how it's a sight to see when you hit town...they should keep the store open up there to make it a sight to see at all need like a footlock...a ladies shoe store...and maybe another food store to sit down and eat pizza hut....thanks for always being there for the people....
