When is the mayor going to bring a grocery store back to the fairground area? The entire span from the Fairgrounds to 17th street has nothing. The downtown area has nothing but artsy fartsy businesses. We need real stores, grocery and drug stores and real clothing and shoe stores. Why is this end of town always forgotten. Dont we matter??????

Grocery stores come to an areaa based upon demand for their products. You feel though its the mayor's job to bring a store to you. Naturally you feel that I should be taxed to pay for it too.
