Sorry to hear about Manzella's. Also lost Guillio's and Pete & Frank's recently. Guess the Dagos are moving too far north?

Dollar General at Manzellas?
Everything is over a dollar in that place.. How can they call it "Dollar" General.
UGH, I can see the ghetto streaming in now.

Dollar Tree is the only real dollar store around here. Everything is $1. Of course, that means they can't carry some thins. The "fivebelow" store is a bigger joke. All they have is junk that Dollar Tree would not bother selling for $1.

No, SCS would never get a decent store like Trader Joes here in the Shores.

OK - so the Dollar Store from 12 and Little Mack (remember it WAS supposed to be the new Emagine Theatre) must be moving there. That means we are left with nothing but the Arab Oil Change/Pest Control on the Southeast corner of 12 and L. Mack. What a drag.

So can anyone tell me are we REALLY getting a Buffalo Wild Wings behind Lindas Disgrace...er I mean Place or was that just BS as well?

I was hoping for another produce & meat market to occupy that building. I heard a rumor that Randazzo's was interested but NO!

Why can't the city planner get the kinds of companies and businesses the residents want? Those are going to be the businesses that do well, not some stupid store no one wants to shop at. Even a casket shop would be better than a More-Than-A-Dollar-More-Junk-F rom-China General store.

The way things are going I would think that opening a casket shop in Detroit would be a good idea.

CC doesnt do anything. Same with the movie theatre that was thinking of 12 and Little Mack. Did CC approach them? No, but a certain rager member wanted to take credit for it... but now there is nothing to take credit for.

Roseville has fewer empty storefronts, but then again Roseville actually has an economic development co that works. SCS just has a bunch of lazy dummies who sit and watch things happen (or not happen), and get paid for going to a few meetings here and there where they pretend in front of the TV to have done something the other 25 days of the month.

Yeah yeah yeah, but let's get to something that actually matters. Has anyone noticed that the new burger joint (well new as of 2 years ago) has a sign on Jefferson that says "best buns in town"? It probably means hamburger buns, but we all know that buns can also mean something else. Like a certain body part. Such filth on Jefferson.

Grrr new businesses in the city! Council should nitpick the signage more! But I'm also going to criticize council for not doing enough to bring new businesses in. I want it both ways.

I'm glad there isn't a movie theater in SCS. Imagine the marquee if they wanted to play a movie with a swear word in the title. There was a movie a year ago called Kick A--. The tragedy that would have been in our city if that was placed on a sign.

Grrr.

It's such a shame what happens when those coloreds move into a nice neighborhood. They ruin everything. They don't watch their kids. They just don't want to work, and they steal anything.

I'd rather see an empty building then a "things that cost more then a dollar" Dollar Store.
Vito should of just bought the building back and called it Vito's Fruit Market
