The Demise of B&N
Looking into the old Barnes and Noble store from the adjoining Starbucks, it looks like the space is gradually being emptied in preparation for the small Target store, which no-one wants in our neighborhood. With a large Walgreens across the street, we do not need this store. Who is to blame? Some posters blamed the residents for changing their purchasing behavior, but I believe that the Village Council had its hand in it. Our small neighborhood shopping centers are being invaded by chain stores, which change the look and feel of our environment. I vow, and it is an easy decision, never to step foot in this Target. That particular store is not one that I often frequent anyway so it is not much of a sacrifice. I'd like our Village Council to bring back some "class" to our neighborhood!!
An aside: I am now among the living! After 15 days of battling a wicked virus, I am slowly recovering. Now I have to go on a photo shoot to continue with my CDP posts. It's a little scary because I am afraid of a relapse. . .haven't been this sick in years, but I definitely have cabin fever, which I suppose is a good sign!
