I hope Johnnies keeps it doors opened .. Wholefoods should open elsewhere in Charlestown if they really want to come here.

WF would be good for me personally but not for this town. Too many poor and elderly people rely on Johnnies for their food shopping.

This is copied from a recent article in this site so not sure about the comments that too many can't afford it like the elderly.

Whole foods wants to buy Johnnies, not build a new store. This point seemed to consistently be lost on you and many others on this board.
