Jewelry Store petition
By Randy M Lake

There is hardly any threat from the jewelry industry taking over anything. When saturation occurs they will start losing money and attrition will occur. If they are all profitable then the demand is there. The whole downtown area is there to cater to cruise ship passengers. The sales tax revenue benefits the whole community. If you do not like jewelry stores; open some other type of business. If your idea has merit you might profit from the economic risk taken, if not, you risk losing your shirt.

Mr. Bolling seems to have some personal issue with jewelry stores, I don't shop in them and I do not care if ten more open. When my undies get all twisted up I go fishing. More effective and far more logical.

If I am missing some element to this seemingly non-issue please clue me in.
