The people of Hudson actually voted to have the Lowe's with another grocery store and hotel built to take the business out of the town and into the suburbs. I called Highland Commons and they will have specialty shops and restaurants as well. That actually covers all the businesses that will suffer and close in the downtown.
Are these people actually stoopid or were they lied to by a politician...
All this for some $10.00 an hour job...that's only $21,000 a year, who can live on that little of money today?

Hudson must need the mall to build a new school (JFK) once again the new tax income will go to the schools not tax relief for residential or improved roads or snow removal or increasing public saftey. Robinsons will close regarless the only thing they are worth while for is small engine repair, the prices are too high and its social hour evry time you walk in there, no help, let the downtown die, maybe I can get home or to the office quicker.

I agree with you. I did like going to Robinson's here and there and I do believe we should support the business' downtown, but the cops there directing traffic make it worse. Sometimes there's traffic backed up to the Stop and Shop when they are on the streets. The people stopping to let someone out tryig to control traffic make it worse... I just want to get through Hudson and get the h e l l out of there as soon as possible.
I've been to the new Lowe's. It is such a great location and the people are great. In and out in no time, love it. Can't wait for the grocery store, Kohls and the little shops to go in....
Hudson screwed themselves, no body told them to vote for this project, but they did! Too Late Now! Once Stupid always Stupid!

I love downtown Hudson. If hollywood every needs to shoot a movie of the perfect NE downdown, Hudson would be it.
I would hate for Robinsons to go belly up, but that whoe area is WATERFRONT and poised for redevelopment. What a great location for a restaurant, or mixed use condos, whatever.
Something desperately needs to be done about the traffic situation, and now. Maybe a series of bypasses around the center, like something from Tuck's that would loop around and drop you off near Lowes. Or From Tucks to Forest streer, open that series of backroads right up.
Hudson needs to realize its own greatness, and build around it!

let's nto kid ourselves, downtown Hudson has been a ghost town long before they finished Lowes so really one has nothing to do with the other. in this economy, people are just going/willing to shop whereever they can get the lowest prices, end of story. i think a dunkins, gap and other chain retailers would do great in downtown hudson. don't gt me wrong, i would love the unique boutiques to thrive but the reality is, something is better than nothing at this point. downtown wellesely is cute and they have many chain retailers so maybe it would work in hudson and both types of shops could coexist and thrive!
