To the editor:
Downtown Lawrence is turning into a Potterville of bars and restaurants. There was a time when there were enough retail shops on Mass. Street that I could spend hours doing my Christmas shopping. Today I was done in about 45 minutes.
Thanks Walmart. Thanks, too, to a City Commission that has rolled over to developers and allowed unbridled retail expansion on the outskirts of town. We have lost a treasure all for the sake of cut rate, low-quality foreign goods.
