Those of us who live in the Banksville area hope that we will soon not have to drive 8-10 miles to buy groceries and hardware supplies - stores that departed long since from our environs. We also hope that the rents charged by the owners will no longer be set at a level whereby the new (hopefully) tennants have to charge such outrageous prices (as before) to make a reasonable proffit???
