Where is our town growing?

Dear Editor:As a loyal customer of Ajax Bike and Sports, it makes me upset that they will not be in the new building to due the huge rent increase.I thought that we as a community were trying to keep local businesses in town. How much money does Steve Marcus need? He can’t give Craig a deal on rent to keep him there? Why not charge the “high end” retailers more rent so as to in effect subsidize the continued presence of Ajax? Where is our town going (growing)? At least the Stube will still be there.As Kenny Moore would say, “Be brave comrades.”Mikey WechslerAspen
