JUNE 26 LETTER: I like shopping in downtown Grand Forks

While some are not satisfied with customer service at downtown businesses in Grand Forks, some are.

Re: Businesses need to be more welcoming (letter, June 19 issue)

I read with dismay the letter regarding businesses needing to be more welcoming here in Grand Forks in last week’s Gazette.

I truly disagree with this opinion in almost every way, finding the shopkeepers, and indeed the people here, being among the friendliest people I have ever met.

I am always cheered up when I go downtown and go among the stores and never find any cause for complaint.  It seems odd that two people could have such different opinions on the same subject. I say hats off to the people of this town for at least making me feel very much at home. I’m happy to call Grand Forks home. Thank you,

Liz Martin, Grand Forks
