The City of Bloomington made a BIG deal when Green Top Grocery picked a site to build. Last Monday person after person spoke to the Council about the GREATNESS of this project and how they needed a tax rebate to open.
Turns out they don’t have the money to build. All those “investors” who threw in $100 or more to be GREEN are now being hit up for loans. This is a solid venture with solid backing! (not)
Why don’t they start by renting one of the many empty stores in Bloomington? Green Top is obviously not capitalism and entrepreneurs risking their money for something they believe in. They want to risk everybody’s money – including taxpayers.
Exactly how will they get local grown produce 12 months a year? If the store opens, what happens to the Farmer’s Market? The text below was included in the email.
