Shop at Pittsburgh Mills mall

Re., the letters concerning “Dollar” stores in New Kensington and Lower Burrell: New Ken will never again be the shopping ‘hub’ of the Valley it was when I was a kid.

I’m disgusted another Dollar store is opening on Logans Ferry Road in Lower Burrell, but we can’t expect Macy’s or Penney’s to open a store there when they have one close by at Pittsburgh Mills mall. Target and Walmart are similar to Kmart, which we already have.

Let’s face it. New Ken and Arnold have been taken over by the druggies, with Lower Burrell quickly following. And we can’t count on the ‘druggies’ ever leaving those cities.

If New Ken-area residents want to do some quality shopping, then the only real option is Mills mall. The good news is the Westmoreland Transit system has daily bus service between New Ken and the Mall daily. The trip takes only 15 minutes.

Since I don’t drive, I am able to take the bus and shop to my heart’s content at the mall.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
