A Little Birdie Told Me


A little birdie told me, that New Harmony is about to be blessed, or cursed, depending on your point of view, with a Dollar Store.  I personally don’t feel I would benefit from having a Dollar Store as a neighbor.  A Dollar Store doesn’t fit the ambience of New Harmony. Plus, my experience with Dollar Stores is that, like fast food franchises, people buy stuff, then throw away the wrappers or containers in the parking lot causing an eyesore. In my view,  Poseyville, Wadesville and Griffin are a lot better fit for a Dollar Store than is New Harmony.

A Dollar store would decrease the value of nearby residential property and cut into the profits of the small family businesses already here. A Dollar Store coming to town would not be good news for Chris’s Pharmacy, because Chris’s shelves offer lots of Dollar Store type merchandise. If Chris were to fold up his tent and close shop, a Dollar Store would not be able to fill your medical prescriptions.

Put me down as against the idea of a Dollar Store here in our quaint little tourist village. It doesn’t fit. But then, that’s just my opinion, I am sure some would disagree.
