To The Editor:
We would love to do most, if not all, of our shopping locally but frankly cannot afford to do so. Two very recent incidents pointed out graphically the high prices in Margaretville.
We needed a new oil tank and got an estimate, locally, for between $1,800-2,200. After making inquiries we got someone from Stamford that did the whole job for $750.
Yesterday, our gas tank for the grill needed to be filled so we filled it in Margaretville for $23. My husband was so shocked and called B.J.’s in Oneonta and the price was $14.
