Re: “Lykos Makes Menswear for a Rugged Lifestyle

To answer your question, The Oracle: The clothes likely will not be made in the Dominican Republic. The Lykos founders used that clothing manufacturer to produce their prototypes but are currently in search of a U.S. textile mill to make their products.

Re: “Lykos Makes Menswear for a Rugged Lifestyle

What do the workers in the Dominican Republic get paid to make the clothes?

Re: “Bridal Brawls: The Old Lantern Fights Its Neighbors Over Noise

Here's another tip - if you want to have a wedding venue, don't try to impose it on an existing community where it has been a very quiet place for decades, where people who move in come for the quiet and privacy, where there are countless retired and seniors with half-million dollar homes who have been there for many years and do not want your noise and your traffic imposing on them. And if you are stupid enough to impose your wedding venue on them, be prepared to expect outrage and rejection from the neighbors, if not lawsuits. And don't stick your wedding venue in a little community that has protective covenants against noise disturbances, because the neighbors will enforce those covenants. There are and are not appropriate sites for these things. Wedding venues succeed when the owners have the common sense to not put them in the wrong place to begin with.

Re: “A Beloved Menswear Salesman Looks Beyond Macy's

What a great person! Sonam helped me buy business suits, overcoats and suit coats, shirts, and ties...you name it. Always has a great attitude and goes out of his way for the shopper. A gentleman in his heart who sent me to a great tailor up on North Avenue.

Re: “A Beloved Menswear Salesman Looks Beyond Macy's

I want to echo the thoughts expressed about Sonam Chophel. I have been assisted by Sonam on numerous occassions over the years and he is knowledgeable, courteous, and patient. He has a good sense of humor and clearly enjoys working with people. He is a gentlemen and I wish him the best.

Re: “Mallsoleum? Vermont's Largest Retail Complex Faces an Uncertain Future

Someone didnt do their research. Finard defaulted on his loan intentionally, with plans to buy it back once it was again for sale. He knew that the property value was well below what he was paying, so he decided not to pay and buy it back for less.

"55-acre indoor arcade"? That must be a typo.

Support families, not corporations. Shop small & local. Let the big box stores and their out of state investment group owners wither and die.

Re: “Food Fight: Burlington-Area Grocers Spar for Customers

Over the years every reference to the Kmart Plaza mentioned pollution as an obstacle to development. For years Kmart was alone with a huge empty building next to it in a prime retail zone off of Shelburne Rd. The explanation for why no one moved in was that the site was polluted and many millions would be needed to clean it up. I was curious as to why a usually very thorough Molly Walsh did not mention this part of the story.

Re: “Food Fight: Burlington-Area Grocers Spar for Customers

I love shopping at City Market despite the Dismal parking. I appreciate that it's employee and community owned and also that it consistently supports local farms. I want to know where my food comes from. City Market has a great organic produce department, local meats, and ready to eat section with hot and chilled foods. There is no competition to their outstanding customer service. Every employee is vested in making your shopping experience the best. I live in Hinesburg and visit City Market multiple times each week. I'm looking forward to the opening of the new store as an alternative to driving downtown each time that I want to shop.

Same for telecom? "The demand for local is strong; the demand for having a community-owned, member-owned [grocery store] is strong," he said.

Re: “Food Fight: Burlington-Area Grocers Spar for Customers

With the single exception of Trader Joe's, I am constantly astonished by the lack of good customer service in supermarkets here. I'm not that interested in the grandeur of the store as much as I am in being served by helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and polite people. Trader Joe's always hits it out of the park, but the others not so much.

Re: “Food Fight: Burlington-Area Grocers Spar for Customers

The old K-Mart building is a great location for some MUCH needed affordable housing right on the route 7 bus line.

The South Burlington Development Review Board should do their jobs and reject this project for all the reasons this story discusses. There is no need to have this many groceries in such a small distance.

When is South Burlington going to do some actual planning before the developing?
