Also I've found outdated items there more than once. I do support local businesses, however, I can't easily get everything I need in the North End. So I have to rely on Peapod. A good supermarket here would be a blessing.

The presence of a superrmarket will not destroy the merchant's who are here. It might force somestores (CVS, GoBananas, The Goose) to be more reasonable in their pricing. I would hardly call any of the stores "beautiful" by any stretch of the imagination. People with cars travel to Chelsea and Somerville and Charlestown for groceries and those of us without cars have groceries delivered or take a cab or rent a zipcar. The seniors take a bus and can only bring home two bags of groceries per trip. If you can afford it and are happy with what you can get in local stores, more power to you. But We need a supermarket, we were promised an AFFORDABLE supermarket for the North End, West End, adn Beacon Hill for the past ten years and we will get a supermarket. When we do you can exercise your right to not shop there if you choose.

I find that with some trips to CVS, The Golden Goose and Bob's grocer, I don't need a supermarket. I like supporting the local business owner who keeps my streets safe and clean. A big supermarket could threaten the beautiful fabric of merchants we have here.

Thanks,

Brian
