what the heck are you saying? many (most?) 5t ppl need a more affordable option. kol save is a garbage store. purposely done that way. prices are spotty. they are not incentivized to make it a good cheap store like bk stores.


its a great business strategy. monopolies are quite profitable. im not saying i wouldn't do the same if i was him, but its crushing the community. I cannot wait for bingo or similar to demolish them.
The way bingo and krm are able to make it with their prices is with major amounts of people shopping there. They work off of bulk sales. They will not have those numbers from the amount of people in the 5 towns that want that kind of store. The best proof of this is Brachs which tried to run that type of store and folded.

If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

right. meant to ask, what's the benefit to current homeowners?
seems like there arent any so of course i want to fight it. but there is no real synopsis of the current state of affairs on the county websites and reporting is contradictory. if the golf course was always zoned with an allowance to convert to housing then we would have a much weaker say in stopping it (though we could still argue environmental etc), but if its not zoned for the housing they want (or was changed to accomodate the developers looking for a steal in 2016, prob based on someone getting paid off) then the community should have strong arguments to deny any change to the zoning that is detrimental without the developers offsetting the negatives with positives (like funding a new park rather than the politicians letter to me asking me to pay 4K more in taxes a year for a park).

You want near Great Neck? Green Olive pizza near LIJ in New Hyde Park is a delicious pizza store.

what are the benefits?
More people who need housing can find what they need. Your friends, your kids, cousins, etc. A little traffic is worth it so they can have what you (hopefully) have - - a house

Do you honestly think the local infrastructure can support it?
