New York Times on small grocery stores struggling to stay in business. It featured a store in San Luis Colorado, one of Autoliterate's favorite destinations.
In Colorado terms, San Luis is probably about as far away, psychically, from, say, Aspen as you can get. We love the San Luis Valley and wish that the store could keep on keepin' on.
Here on the peninsula, the Brooklin Store, which has been in business for a century or so, was rebuilt, and re-opened this spring. We're lucky to have it.
BTW, there was '56 Chevy wagon for sale in San Luis back in April. Maybe still there.
- Brooklin, Maine, United States
- We own a 1975 GMC Sierra Grande 15 in Maine and a 1986 Chevrolet Custom Deluxe 10 in West Texas. Also a pair of 1997 Volvo 850 wagons. Average age in the fleet is 28 years--we're recycling. I've published 3 novels: THE LAW OF DREAMS (2006), THE O'BRIENS (2012), and CARRY ME (2016). Also 2 short story collections: NIGHT DRIVING(1987) and TRAVELLING LIGHT (2013).
