Pedestrian mall hurt downtown business

Dear Editor,

It’s sad to see the downtown area struggling so hard to pay rents with weak sales lately.

Does anybody remember the spirited debate about whether to put in the pedestrian mall on Seventh Street or not?

Well, may I submit that those who were opposed to the mall were correct. The small businesses there seem to need those 10 or so parking places to be filled with shoppers, don’t you think?

It’s a thin line between profits one can live on and not quite making it.

Anybody need some slightly used bricks?
