Re: “Former Veggie Bin location rezoned to make way for housing

That's the 2nd time in 2 years City Paper has implied EBTV is closing or in trouble. As a regular customer myself, I was just told last week that 2017 has seen their best profits ever.

C'mon, CP- I love this publication, but how about a more balanced article, or maybe showing one of the last remaining services/core businesses on the peninsula some love?

Re: “Two-way conversion of Spring and Cannon streets begins Oct. 2

It's also going to be great (sarcasm) when it's 2-way and all the parents stop in the middle of the street in front of the Cannon Street YMCA to drop off/pick up their kids during rush hour. Traffic is going to back up like crazy, esp. since it leads to Coming/the Crosstown.

Regarding street parking- at a Cannonborough-Elliotborogh neighborhood association meeting to discuss this conversion 3 or 4 years ago, a city representative told the few residents who showed up that street parking is 'a privilege, not a right' and heavily implied that at some point in the future, it would be removed for a paid parking garages for residents lacking driveways.

Makes sense- the city would make a lot more $$$ for monthly parking spots that we'd all have to walk blocks and blocks to and from lugging groceries, that it does on the cheap yearly street parking permits.

Re: “Smith Street Pizza (formerly Norm's) shutters after three months in business

The menu change was definitely the problem. Norm's was a treasure because it delivered a large variety at a low price point. Maybe not the best food, but cheap and fast and lots of options arriving right at your door.

I ordered from Norm's at least once a month, and noticed immediately that Smith Street's menu lacked anything other than pizza and a few hoagies- something I can get from a variety of other places.

Re: “Gentrification hits home (and businesses) in Charleston

Mentioning East Bay True Value in this was an uncool move, CP. So was fact-checking after it was published.

Never mind their lease was honored when the building transition took place. You're making it seem like they're going out of business at any moment, which could seriously hurt the bottom-line of this family owned-and-operated institution. A rumor in this town goes a lot further than fact.

Re: “Mayor Tecklenburg lays out plan in response to Bi-Lo closing

Having shopped at this location for several decades, the Piggly Wiggly was far superior to BiLo. It was clear BiLo had no intention of putting any love (or money) into this store. Sad, becasue as Piggly Wiggly, it had a lot of personality and character.
