To the editor:
I am a concerned citizen of the Country Club area of Independence. As you know, the Thriftway store at Crysler Avenue and Sheley Road has closed its doors recently. That store, along with churches on Crysler, happened to be the heart and soul of this neighborhood. It is now another empty building, along with many others in this town.
I’ve talked to many people, and we need a grocery store, as it was a smaller store, not like Price Chopper or Hy-Vee. Is it possible another grocery store would by chance open in this spot. Would it help if we got up a petition for a grocery store?
