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,
