Stop and Shop?

There are only so many shoppers in the milford area.  "The Pie"  When you divide that pie over 2 or 4 grocery stores the slices get smaller. The pie doesn't gfet any bigger. Between Walmart, Market Basket and Shaws I didn't see a need to "build" another grocery store not needed! Remember Grand Union aka Violet's aka Star Market on Rt 101?  No demand.  More stores smaller slices, just because they build a store doesn't mean the "piue" gets bigger.  It is what it is.  Unfortuantly Employees counted on those jobs,town counted on the taxes and a empty eyesore will be the landmark titled" Wasn't needed but we came anyway!" Where will the shoppers go?  Where they went before.
