C Town Sign

The sign on the C town store window reads. Due to extensive damage caused by hurricane Sandy we will be closed until further notice, sorry. What the sign does not tell you is that the store which has been in the West End for over 50 years is up for sale, and has been for about two months. No one is denying the store didn't suffer damage but the real reason that  sign was posted was they need to save face from the community they abandoned after the storm, C town does everything with smoke and mirrors, this is just another case. People can deny the fact. because it is easier to hide behind a sign then it is to just come out and say.

i walked into that store the summer of 2011 and they were being forced to get rid of there union. One of the owners ( not sure which one) walked around threaten to close the store if the employees didn't vote the union out, the workers on the floor would talk about it daily to customers, i remember standing at the deli counter when this conversation was taking place. Maybe, they should have closed the doors then. I never went back into that store, being a union guy myself.

if they were a union store you'd be paying more

We'd gladly pay more to keep Americans earning a living wage. That's exactly why I don't drive a Jap car or hire non-union workers in my business.

@ Telegram for Mongo, They were a union store for many years, the owners dubbed the employees that the store was losing money , and would threaten the employees that if they didn't vote the union out they would close the store. They used 15 & 16 year old bag boys and cashiers who were non- union workers to get the vote. @ AK39. It was Barry Koff who would threaten and lie , make broken promises, @ Eddie, This country was built by union's and union workers, The West End was built by hard workers, laborers, for anyone to go and support a business who treats there employees like dirty, then good luck to them. The Koff's hide in there own little world. The union has been notified of this.
