Great Barrington needs better retailers
To the editor:
I have to say that I'm not upset at all about KMart closing. The store is a dump and the employees lack professionalism and people skills.
I am also glad that Kimco has had a change of heart about Marshall's. We have enough clothing stores in Great Barrington and Marshall's isn't really a great store. Hopefully we will get useful stores in there and they will be able to stick around.
We all know that Great Barrington is a make it or break it town. We really need a Walmart or a Target in our town. Since they are turning Great Barrington into more or less a city they should allow the big retailers in.
