Now a couple of "rent-to-own" stores, and a couple of "Cash Advance" stores, a rib place or two, and you'll be right up there with Marysville....

Great for a bad declining area. Now NEIGHBORS kkep the thugs and dopers away and help keep it clean. Don't let the trash "Trash" your new store you've needed for so long.

The church would have hopeful been involved in the community. Reynoldsburg is on a decline and needs all the community involvement it can get. I so do not buy the whole walk to the grocery thing.

WHO KNEW???

All along, the SOLUTION to stopping CRIME has been sitting right under our noses and we have been too blind to see it.

All we had to do is open up a Valu King store, and... HOCUS POCUS!!! Crime will DISAPPEAR!!!

There are enough churches in Reynoldsburg. What was needed and has finally arrived was a grocery to replace the big bear. Whether the residents walk, ride or pogo stick there does not matter.

So, let's see -

The community is prosperous and vibrant.

Then the makeup of the community changes.

Crime increases -- former residents move out, leaving the community to the newcomers. Businesses close due to lack of business, and the crime problem flourishes.

Now the newcomers are complaining that the city is failing, and they want a "hand" in cleaning up their town.

How many times are we going to see this happen before somebody admits what the real problem is ??

I've been thinking how could I start and maintain a community garden myself, I'm retired on disability, a community garden makes good sense.

I have one of the community garden plots behind the firehouse and its working out pretty well so far. The other gardeners are nice folks, the gardens are doing well and I hope that we can help out the food pantries with a bumper crop.

I stopped in the Value King yesterday. It seemed to have pretty good prices on both name and store brand items as well as a decent if not limited selection. Reminded me of a grocery store out of the 70s - no pharmacy and no bank which was kind of cool.

I plan to patronize this store regularly as it provides value and some stability to that area of my city. I do hope maybe a bank, pharmacy, barber etc can setup nearby and I would knockout some more errands.

I used to live in Century City nearby which has gone downhill. Hopefully the residents there can get a decent bag of groceries at a value price within walking distance.
