Re: “Healthy Living Plans Yet Another New Store, in Williston

Thanks for the reminder so I can swing by and stock up at Natural Provisions on Harvest Lane. Our community needs to make an effort to support the good guys or one day we'll look around at all the bad guys surrounding us and wonder what the heck happened to the neighborhood.

The thought of Wealthy Living wrapping its tentacles tighter around us gives me indigestion.

Re: “Healthy Living Plans Yet Another New Store, in Williston

This author really should reach out to the 6 former Healthy Living employees who brought up some serious concerns on Reddit.

I hope additional restaurants sign up. I am not a pizza girl.

Re: “Perky Planet Coffee Now Serving in Burlington

I love this place so much! Stopped in for a latte, they are super friendly, the latte was excellent, and I love that I can walk away with my morning drink knowing that my money is helping others. Just go! Lets keep these people thriving, they deserve it!

Re: “Dinner Via Mr. Delivery in Burlington

One of the best things about Mr. Delivery is that the Burlington franchise is locally owned by a UVM (14) grad! Hes also super handsome :) Happy Valentines Day Asher!

Re: “Pending Town Meeting Approval, Healthy Living Aims to Build Store in Shelburne

The reaction to this story makes me wonder why anyone would want to invest in Vermont . I don't have any particular opinion of Healthy Living . I might stop in when shopping at Trader Joe's . HL has a good selection at high prices . Unlikely to make a big order.
So why the hate for a Vermont owned and based business ? I don't get you people . Don't shop there fine but actively wishing them failure is odd .

If Bud Wilson was involved in renovating the space, it's going to be stunning. Bud's architectural sensibility is pure genius...

Re: “Pending Town Meeting Approval, Healthy Living Aims to Build Store in Shelburne

I love how "Wealthy Living" is trying to get the town of Shelburne to help finance their project. Their South Burlington store is only 7 miles from this new location -- and Shelburne already has a supermarket ... plus Hannafords, Shaws, Price Chopper/Market 32 and City Market's new south end store are just four miles north! Please don't be greedy -- we don't need another market ... and Shelburne cannot afford to move the fire station after spending a fortune on the railroad lawsuit and the $6.5 million library.

Re: “Pending Town Meeting Approval, Healthy Living Aims to Build Store in Shelburne

Shelburne is a small town: 7,730 residents in 2017, 19% under 18 (most not contributing to taxes). We have been hemorrhaging money. It needs to stop. Not all residents are affluent. Keep the fire station where it is. Deal with it.

Move the station and what happens when a fire breaks out on the south side of Shelburne, when traffic is backed up from north of the Rice intersection, all the way down to the traffic light in town...as it can be even now, without any added Healthy Living traffic?

Re: “Pending Town Meeting Approval, Healthy Living Aims to Build Store in Shelburne

Shelburne Supermarket is no longer locally owned. it is owned by an NH business Associated Grocers of New England. Facts matter

Re: “Pending Town Meeting Approval, Healthy Living Aims to Build Store in Shelburne

Clearly it would hurt Shelburne Supermarket, another local business that has been here for Shelburne, Charlotte and S. Burlington for years without asking taxpayers for support. City Market has just built a new store not all that far away. We don't need another store on Rt 7, and certainly not one asking for support! from the town.

Re: “Pending Town Meeting Approval, Healthy Living Aims to Build Store in Shelburne

Another bond issue for the overtaxed town...lets see- we are paying a huge amount for constant lawsuits against the Railroad, a new firetruck- and yes, and a 6.5 million dollar library- over budget...lets add this to the plate. OUR SELECTBOARD NEED TO STOP SPENDING MONEY. that's what happens when it's filled with lawyers and doctors- and not everyday folk.

Re: “Pending Town Meeting Approval, Healthy Living Aims to Build Store in Shelburne

Having a sussessful biz and connections that parents can give you is a pretty great thing...Hes a lucky guy for sure. Farrell, OBrien, Hinsdale, Bissonette, Handy, Vallee, Davis, Pomerleau, Ireland, Pecor, Wulfson, etc...all families that hit it big in the last 45 years or so in Chittenden Co. and handed off to next generations. These families continue to build Chittenden Co. and the state economically.
