To those of you that think this is great for job creation, please show me a family that is well supported where both parents work as cashiers, stock shelves, or wait tables.

This does nothing but bring the quality of life in the area down and the cost of living up, it will lower the average income for the area and cost more in infrastructure upgrades than it is worth.
Not to mention the additional emergency services that will be needed due to more traffic, and theft.
Guess who gets to pay that bill?

The majority of the money spent at the establishments there will flow back to whatever out of state corporation or forgein country that sells the goods or manufactures the products that are purchased there.

I would prefer to travel to the third world of York to get my cheap foreign goods and leave the riff raft behind when I go home.

I see a couple of commentators from the MD area, why did you flee MD?

Too expensive with all its retail and associated costs? Too much crime with all the places available too steal from? And now you want it here?

I think that the mall has already put itself under a long time ago. This will just be the nail in the coffin.

Dear God! This is all so typical of local comments. It's a story about improvements to this area and the first response is to bash it and somehow drag immigrants into the mix. Let it go already. And be happy with what were getting.

Just like most Hanovarians to have such a negative opinion of change. I grew up in this town and I'm no spring chicken, but I still welcome positive change.

Target is a great store, maybe the CS lacks, but the bargains are way beyond. If you search coupon forums, you would see millions of Target posts about how/when to find the greatest deals at Target.

I've eaten at the W.York Olive Garden many times and never had anything that was bad. Plus, their service is awesome. Yes, sometimes you do wait for a seat, but that just means they must be good.

As for jobs, this is also a good thing, although I don't know if most of these jobs will be paying very much. But some jobs are better than no jobs.

Hobby Lobby is much more than a scrapbook store. I'm excited about this, the closest one is in Chambersburg and that's a haul. I'm not sure Hanover needs many more restaurants but I do enjoy five guys. There are at least 3 Best Buys within 30 minutes of Hanover, so I'm not sure that's necessary either.
There is one in york, and that is a pain to get to, where are the other two best buys?

The target in West York is the worst store you could ever go in.Dirty diapers lying around in the store. Check the food you buy there, sometimes the jars and box have been opened. Sales people are right down rude and lazy. I also had a problem with the sales slip not having the right amounts added up. I like Walmart-they have the best prices and are CLEAN.When you go to Walmart they go out of their way to help you find an item.
It's like this at all retail stores (people opening containers) not caring about the next person who wants to buy it and theft has never been this bad than this year. I know because I work in retail.

I for one simply want jobs with acceptable pay and separate insurance that is affordable. I don't want a job that welds me in place by providing a microcosm of a nanny state for their employees by providing all services I need. Go move some place you are "proud of" or accept your path of least resistance!

Really? An environmental disaster? Like it or not there is a demand for these stores and restaurants, aside from which it will create jobs that will keep people working so they may continue to support the infrastructure of this growing town.

For the record, Mayberry is in North Carolina. I've got a map for you.

Dance clubs have never worked and never will in the area (i.e The Ox, Woody's and a ton of other names). There is no need for that type of reckless enviroment in a small town. They are great when they first open, but then the wrong crowd starts ruining the places.
Kind of like a Casino. Why not put in a 300 room hotel and bring LeVan's casino to Hanover? Anywhere but Gettysburg!

What a well thought out retort, well I guess I have changed my mind with your educated statement.

Please tell me what part of my statement is incorrect?

Are there waiters that average 50K+ plus a year, have health insurance,retirement plans, and can support a family of four?

No? Maybe a stock boy? No? Maybe the cashiers at Target will.

Of course with the added traffic and people moving in and out of a small area, there will be no need for additional first responders. What was I thinking?

Check and see who is paying for the majority of the infrastructure upgrades (water, sewer, roads, etc.). Here is a hint, it isn't the developer or the businesses.

And why have all the MD people migrated up here (I don't blame them). Of course it has nothing to do with the cost of living in MD caused by over developement making land more scarce and vaulable, and of course more expensive.
Again, what was I thinking?

Thank you for allowing me to see the error of my ways. Sheeple.

When will it end refers to 50k jobs where are they,
I don't know of any around here. I know lots of well educated people in this area and believe me they don't make anywhere near that figure.Unless of course he is refering to teachers who are sucking the life out of the rest of us

The Ox and Woody's failed because their immature owners couldn't handle their money, women or booze.

Whether we like it or not, there is demand for these stores or they wouldn't be coming here. They spend millions doing studies and researching markets before placing a corporate store.

Keep in mind, north Hanover shoppers come from all over, Abbottstown, East Berlin, York Springs, Biglerville, Gettysburg, New Oxford, McSherrytown and many others.

Traffic will be a major issue because the roads are antiquated. Even the lanes that are being added will only bring the roads up to date, not plan for the future.

And there lies the problem...Antiquated tax system, antiquated government. My wife and I are PA "natives". We both work in Maryland because her 74,000 carer pays 38,000 here. 85% of my business is in Maryland because the vast marjority of people here in PA cannot afford my services. If the Bush tax cuts fail to continue, my rate will increase even more. More licensing, regulation and insurance costs have been killing me. The more I pay, the more you pay. Be careful how you vote.

I hear ya, I can't believe the Republicans say they wont vote for the Bush era tax cuts for people who make under a quarter of a million dollars per year! Their leader called having to vote for middle America's tax cuts "chicken crap". I can't believe I voted for them, they promised they would vote for middle class tax cuts...sad.

What the hell are you talking about? EXPENSIVE??
We spend the same amount at McDonald's as at Five Guys..but Five Guys has real food!

This whole wealthy vs "the rest" mentality has got to go.
To the rest of the naysayers
Hanover and the surrounding area has grown 30% in 10 years or even more...we NEED an alternative to Walmart, LaCucina ( bring your own wine), etc. Olive Garden is not bad at all..and you can buy a beer if you want! The new place will even have a Ross Dress for Less..an excellent store .

Grow up- this whole town needs to get with the present and look toward the future!
