Re: “What can be done to fill the Eastside's grocery gap?

on the heels of your stories addressing the fact that there are restaurants not opening (the Asian woman who was on your cover who had won some TV cooking show) and those who are closing because of a lack of staff (Two Boroughs) it may be time for simple economics. people who work in the hotels and restaurants can no longer afford to live downtown. go a step forward. no workers living in the area means no people to shop at grocery stores. visitors in hotels and air bnb's don't shop at grocery stores. the only thing that will slow this is when there are not enough people to staff the hotels and THEY have to close. maybe we can all move into the hotels. Then the market drives someone to open a new grocery store to satisfy the demand.

Re: “Escaping to Charleston's mother colony, Barbados

Great article. I do want to point out that BRIDGETOWN is the capital of Barbados, NOT Bridgeport. Also, the Saharan dust makes the view on the EAST Coast hazy NOT the West Coast.

Must. Resist. Temptation. To. Make. Toxoplasmosis. Quip.

This sounds like a lovely idea, and I hope it works out for these entrepreneurs. "I'll take a Cabernet, a muffin, and a lap cat in a non-clashing-with-my-pants fur color."

Re: “What can be done to fill the Eastside's grocery gap?

BiLo killed that store. Prices almost as high as Harris-Teeter, food not as good. Pathetic bread selection, non-existent cheese & deli items, and they threw out the fried chicken recipe. Along with most of the great people who worked there at the Pig.
BiLo spent months refusing to ticket non-shoppers cars. The lot was full (construction workers and students), but the store was empty (no place for shoppers to park). In the time it took to park, it was easier to drive to Food Lion or Doschers.

Re: “Trigger warnings are an insult to students' intelligence

Trigger warnings are definitely one of the more annoying parts of the ever-evolving liberal philosophy. However I will take them any day over the conservative counterpart, pulling literal triggers on people who frighten or disagree with us, or happen to have a different skin color.

There are oldies stations. They're on the AM frequency. Talk radio. Perfect for people living in the past.

Re: “Trigger warnings are an insult to students' intelligence

Decades of trigger warnings preceding news stories, violent movies, and TV programming and all of a sudden, people need to lose their sh*t because professors give students a heads-up before class material. The end is nigh, oh my god! Censorship because someone previewed a lecture! Society is collapsing!

Re: “What can be done to fill the Eastside's grocery gap?

There is also a grocery delivery service that delivers to the downtown area and their prices are comparing with BiLo.
www.BerryD.Com is how they can access groceries and meal kits.

Re: “What can be done to fill the Eastside's grocery gap?

Good luck with that. BiLo's closest competitor was a higher priced Harris Teeter and they still couldn't generate enough sales in their neighborhood to make it worth staying open, so how can you expect another retailer to want to take over the space? these are businesses not charities. The neighborhood has spoken, BiLo listened, simple as that. The column speaks directly of a few local customers and I realize this will create hardship for some, but it takes a whole lot more than a few to keep the doors open. The last few times I was in the store it seemed like there were more employees than customers. You don't survive as a retailer like that.

Re: “How Charleston’s accommodations taxes are spent

so half goes to cops and meter maids, both of which MAKE money through tickets? so the fees pay the people we pay to charge us all more. and the money they all skim off us all goes to shore up a breakwall for the South of Broad millionaires. Great scam on the common non-government types who work and visit here. what a country.

Only ten years. Seems rather quick. I'm sure the free parking will disappear when it's "fixed"
