Supports closing of Newton Street Big Y
To the editor:
I am in full support of the removal of the Big Y World Class Markets store on Newton Street in South Hadley. The fact that there are two Big Y stores only a mile apart is ridiculous.
It’s pointless to have them so close together. The money used to create the second one could have gone to restoring older stores or building another store in a more remote place.
It’s nice to know a lot of the employees at the soon-to-be-closed Big Y are going to be placed in the other one and that employees who will be laid off are getting help job searching.
I’m sure the business increase at the Willimansett Street store will be appreciated by the employees.
