Trying to Understand

To the Editor, I'm still trying to understand how Red Lodge ended up approving a dollar store with no public input. While "only" a part-time Red Lodger, my husband and I pay plenty of taxes in Red Lodge, buy almost wholly from local stores and have a sincere interest in seeing Red Lodge continue to be the special place it now is. A Dollar Store might hire two minimum wage employees, will bring in $0 resort tax dollars, minimum sales tax and offer nothing unique to tourists in Red Lodge. I am very interested in hearing about the benefits I have to assume the City Council saw, and never saw fit to publicize. Susan Kircher Red Lodge
