Reporter Jackie Majerus' story about the downtown grocery store in today's paper is clearly an important one as the community talks about how best to redevelop the mall. Here's the story:
BRISTOL – A petition drive is just the first step of what the manager of Bristol Discount Food Outlet hopes will be a citizen effort to save the small food store on the downtown mall property.
Bob Veilleux, manager of DFO, said the grocery store has a month-to-month lease with the city and an uncertain future.
"It's really up to the customers, the community, whether they want this store or not," said Veilleux. "The only way that this store will be standing a year from today is if the community gets involved."
