Admit it ladies and gentlemen, Crewe is all about deprivation. Let us count what Crewe doesn't have, 1. grocery store, a grocer could make a fortune here and the Dollar General is not a grocery store. 2. Department stores, there is a lot of room for that. 3. Entertainment, the most entertainment Crewe gets is if they see fire trucks flying by or domestic disputes.

It's quite sad. Companies need to look at their options here. What I wouldn't give to see a Kroger grocery store here, a mall is pushing it because I know it will never come nor will entertainment.

What take do you have on this?

I don't think a large chain grocery store will ever come to Crewe because the town is too small but I do think it should be a top priority for the Crewe Chamber of Commerce to do everything it can to advertise and recruit an independent grocer to come to Crewe and open up a store. A town with no grocery store will certainly have difficulty attracting any sort of economic development.

I would agree that say Food Lion would never open a store here but they are missing the boat. Does the word "development" not exist here?

It is a very strange situation. Victoria has 2 grocery stores now. Heck, I don't even see a Schwann's truck in Crewe!!!

Oh Schwann's goes to Crewe. I do have to agree that a combined effort on the part of Crewe and Burkeville to place a store in the center. Keysville is small also but it has a grocery store.

Thanks. Sooner or later, somebody will realize that there's money to be made there.

It's pure stupidity on a grocery stores part. A grocery store makes money point blank. What is so hard for these stores to understand?? Yes, I know the economy is at rock bottom but people have to eat or they starve. Build the bloody store!

D,G will make its store bigger and that would be just fine as long as we can get more things from there.

I disagree with a D.G. store. Who wants that? We need to see a grocery store name that is known not D.G. take Food Lion, Kroger, Harris Teeter, Ukrops now Martins those names would build this place up.

If the store is built they will come. I'm so tired of the nothingness in this town someone has to step up and get this taken care of. I'm sure it's not on the Mayors "Let's Reform Crewe" paper. People that once lived here and have passed on would turn over in their grave if they knew how bad this town has become. I would actually like to see a storm come through here and blow down all these dilapidated buildings such as what happened up town near Roger's Auto. The building actually looks good now.
