What affects my health?
The Food City in Brainerd closed down because some bigwig in Illinois wanted too much for rent.
There is no promise another grocery will replace it, and other stores surrounding it are jeopardized by the sudden loss of business.
The Food City on Ringgold road is smaller than the Brainerd store and the head manager is neither as nice nor willing to order items not in stock like the people in Brainerd.
Plus, they recently stopped carrying Wondra Flour. When asked, the manager even doubted they ever carried it, when I bought it last week.
I’ve been relying on specific name brands for my baking and then suddenly the stores closest to me shut down or stop carrying what I need to be productive, while modern day Robber Barons far away get away with a scandal that affects the common people like me.
