I could care less for another bar/club in this town. I would much rather see a furniture store in there. This town is in dire needs of businesses that build the town and the local economy up and make it a strong town and community. Sorry, but bars and clubs don't do that. More and more we are having to go outside this town to find the kind of products we need. I just don't see Indy growing much at all. It's a shame we are dying on the vine! That said, good luck to the new club, even tho I will never spend one dime in it. Sounds like the young owner may have business aspirations and hopefully if successful will work another business into the community in which I can and would support.

I hope 301 is a big success. But try to count the number of businesses that have failed in downtown Independence in the last ten years, and I think you'll be unpleasantly surprised.

If as many people shopped the downtown businesses ON A REGULAR BASIS INSTEAD OF GOING OUT OF TOWN FOR EVERY LITTLE THING, then many of those closed businesses would've had more of a chance to succeed. They can't succeed without customers...and they can't offer more products to sell, without customers shopping them. Those who only order online, or run out of town for all their shopping, definitely have no right to critique the businesses we do have left in our awesome little town. The more everyone shops the local businesses, the more our town will grow....and they have to be regular shoppers, not once or twice a year shoppers. Every person who complains about our local businesses, also needs to have to run a business of their own downtown...then they'd understand why it's important to be loyal to our local stores. It's not an easy task to keep a store open, when everyone talks about going to "Walmart" for every little thing, or they talk about ordering online and making trips to Okla or Missouri for shopping. Let's all make it our goal for the rest of the year to at least stop by the local merchants and try to support them. Another big help is spreading the word about the wonderful products they carry. Word of mouth is by far the cheapest and best form of advertisement!

I do shop Indy stores as much as I can. Money I need to spend on new furniture and appliances = $4000-5000, money I need to spend on beer and drinks = $0.

All the local bars do help stimulate our local economy in a huge way.
Four county gets people by the droves ordered there by the court to do many different kinds of alochol training classes.
The local business that gets to install all the alochol monitoring devices on DUI reciepients, ordered by the court.
The EMT services that get to scrape the victims of alochol abuse up off our local roads.
The towing services that get to clean the wrecked cars from the roadways.
The local scrap yards that recycles the damaged vehicles.
The lawyers representing all the DUI cases, also all the divorce cases caused by drunk promiscuos spouses.
Those bars serve a liquid that is chemically addictive, the more they serve, the more alocholics are produced and the more economic stimulation will occur, thats why we have so many drinking establishments in town, and liquor stores.

All the money our courts get from alochol abuse, you'd think they would spend some of it to support prevention.

Alcohol doesn't Drunk people; people drunk people. But the alcohol surely helps a little. But then agai, the same goes for guns.

Advertising in the Reporter...hah! Wasted money. I don't think kids listen to the local stations...more wasted money.

Think target market...

Better do social media, big time...takes an investment in time, but you don't waste your money.
