Better try Aldi. Then again, those Germans are not about to hand bags of cash to Horsemeat.

Better give up altogether.

Giant Eagle is too upscale, Aldi probably won't come, Save A Lot is in Moundsville, Kroger won't reopen...what are the options? Maybe a nice Foodland?

Stop making ridiculous demands and looking for brown paper bags full of greenbacks and folks might consider Buttwood.

Then again, reading the local paper, eh....they probably won't.

I think Riesbecks would be a good fit.

"I think we have a*****of a package from a developer willing to spend his money, build the building and provide the land," he said. "There are 23,000 cars a day that go past there. It's a*****of a spot for a grocery store."

Brilliant choice of words used in describing the features of the area.

I have three words. Save A Lot. I would drive from Bellaire to a Save A Lot. I some times shop there in Moundsville if I know I'll be in the area. I do miss Giant Eagle but they have pretty much pulled out of the area. I don't think Riesbecks will go for it.

I am not sure who looks more foolish. The Benwood police chief or the newspaper that quotes him several times a week.

'...Leaders Working Hard to lure new grocer....'

That's a scream! You can't make this stuff up! This paper is worth the read for the laughs. Keep it up NR!

I was getting tired of reading endless regurgitations of 'Troubled bridge over Benwood'
