Having second thoughts on store?


To The Editor:
Been wondering about this latest small amount of info that has been let out by the owners of Freshtown in the last edition of the Catskill Mountain News.

I find it either a little hard to believe in the main or mainly hard to believe. Are they really waiting for the insurance money to rebuild? If rebuilding was going to be really in their self-interest couldn’t they use other monies in the meantime? Are they having trouble getting insured going forward in light of their loss? Are they simply having second thoughts?

In any event, their continued existence is so critical to the lives of the folks in the Margaretville area, and we have supported them wholeheartedly with our business, that is would be a civic and a decent gesture for us to be given the whole story.
