  1. You have devastated the people in our area who have made Expect their primary grocery shopping store.
    It was also a place to spend time looking at all the closeouts merchandise and having lots of fun doing so.
    The cost of living in our State is not easy for the young and elderly and your Corporation has robbed them of the ability to feed and sometimes cloth their families on fixed incomes.
    I hope your stock holders read this and realize the strain they have put on many families in our area.
