Editorial: An unnecessary battle

The Hatchet’s editorial board argues against the claims of the West End Citizens Association in their efforts to alter FoBoGro’s business plan.

A battle has been raging between FoBoGro, the new grocery store to be located on F Street, and the West End Citizens Association, a neighborhood advocacy group. WECA is opposing the store’s proposed operating hours and its plans to act as a delicatessen. Having baseless complaints, WECA should raise its white flag on this issue. The group is not only hurting the community by attempting to stop the planned establishment of a new business, but its members are jeopardizing the legitimacy of their future claims.
