    Sorry. Good News About Eggertsville/Amherst.

    I speculate that there will be those (with obvious chips on their shoulders) that find all the bad things about this while ignoring that it's good and happening. And, God forbid, it's happening in Eggertsville (gasp!). Lol. Live with it, suckers.

    The new center will have plenty to offer, like restaurants, stores, and even green space.
    No tax breaks right? Personally I believe it's wrong to give tax breaks to businesses that will compete with existing businesses in the area.

    Kinda a moot point here... there is no other operation like this in the area... unless you view this as simply a strip mall/plaza... which it clearly is not... though, I suppose, a negative-nelly would argue that point just to try to put a damper on the situation. Be happy.

    It's cool. Just pointed out that I personally don't believe in tax breaks. Keep everyone on the same playing field.

    "Restaurants" I'm pretty sure there are other restaurants in the area that are not receiving tax breaks. You might not know this but the restaurant business is competitive.

    "Stores" I'm pretty sure there are other stores in the area that are not receiving tax breaks. Well you know how competitive retail is.

    Member, I drive through the lot every day and watch the work progressing. Demolition costs alone must be huge. I was concerned that the whole thing might fall apart. Out of town developers typically aren’t used to the regime of payola and corruption that dominates the approval process for such projects in western New York. I’ll be interested to see if Whole Paycheck can survive until the rest is completed. There’s already speculation that it will be shuttered by late spring. Apparently, not everyone likes paying premium prices for limited selection and quality when there are about 17 grocery stores within 6 miles. I’m really looking forward to sitting outside there a year from now and watching the traffic race by on Sheridan Drive as it showers me and my family with slush. And I’m sure that the opportunity to sweat and shop at the same place will fill a void in my life that until today I didn’t even know existed.
