Billy Schroeder, Giulianova Groceria: Support small town small businesses

January 25, 2013

Dear Editor,

The moving of a Little Caesars Pizza shop right next to Mediterraneo Restaurant is the last straw.

In the past ten years, there have been some alarming realities among small business in Carroll County. The following examples are not necessarily in chronological order.

The Co-Op grocery store has been replaced by a Food Lion.

The Pennsylvania Dutch Market has been replaced by an Advanced Auto Parts and a PetSmart

Lowes and Home Depot have forced the closure of regional, locally owned hardware stores; Schaefer's, Albert's, and Kopp to name three.

Papa John's built next to Frisco's Pub, which no longer in business.

Race Pace Bicycles built within walking distance of White's Bicycles.

Little Caesar's recently opened next to the Mediterraneo.

Firehouse Subs next to Roberto's.

IHOP being being placed one block away from Baugher's family restaurant.

Quiznio's opened in the same shopping center as Ledo's Pizza.

Starbucks built around the corner from Starry Night Bakery.

A Greene Turtle, Applebee's, and Ruby Tuesday within walking distance from Time Out Sports Bar and Grille, no longer in business.

Olive Garden across the street from Maria's, no longer in business.

I say put the Little Caesars next to Pizza Hut and see what Pizza hut has to say. Put the IHOP next to Bob Evans and see what happens. As a small business owner am I supposed to sit idly by and suck it up? Small business is the backbone of America and it is hard enough competing with the Wall Marts of the world. How many more Subways, Jiffy Marts, Wa Wa's, 7-11's ECT does one small town need. Only we the consumers can make a difference

Twenty-five cents on each dollar of a business' gross income is immediately spent in taxes, licenses, and fees. When shopping locally, the remaining 75 cents is recycled back into the community. Adversely, when shopping in chain establishments that money is absorbed and spent within the corporation. Where are we going, Westminster? What are we becoming? I am afraid that the Westminster I have grown to know and love is losing the 'small town' flavor I cherish. Living in Westminster has lost the feeling of being home' and has morphed into merely a place to live.

There is still time to reverse this direction. Please help us regain what we have lost. Please, Please, Please support small business. If the course we are on continues, we will certainly dry up and blow away.

Sincerely,
William P. Schroeder Jr. Chef/Owner Brother Sun Inc. DBA Giulianova Groceria and Deli
