RE: Big-box stores

I am writing in response to the article in the paper regarding box stores coming to Grass Valley and Nevada County.

I am very much opposed to any of the big-box stores coming to our community.

Why did you move up here anyway? You came here for all the beauty and the unique part of our county and now want to ruin all of that by having what you left behind.

I also feel it will hurt small businesses. The small businesses are what has made our county. The only ones that will make money are the box stores.

I ask the Board of Supervisors and the council to not be penny wise and pound foolish. The big-box stores have not helped Sacramento or Roseville. They seem to be having the same problem as Nevada County.

If people are unhappy here, it would behoove them to move to a place where they have all the conveniences they want.
