The closing of Save-A-Lot is indeed devastating to the downtown residents as well as the employees who depend on the grocery to pick up items on their way home. Grocers are an anchor, serving a much-needed purpose to those who do not have transportation to the outlying grocery stores.
While the community addresses what to do with the empty Save-a-Lot building, let us not make a decision until all possibilities have been exhausted to recruit another grocer. Many of our downtown residents depend on it!
