Letter To The Editor
January 10, 2012
Dear Lakewood Observer Editor,
I have been going to the Convenient store on Madison Avenue for years. Service is always good.
The owner, Neil McReynolds, showed me a letter he got from Chief of Police Timothy J. Malley. The letter said the police Narcotics/Vice unit did "compliance inspections" on December 2, 2012, trying to identify stores that sold alcohol to underage kids.
The letter said Neil's store was among those that refused to sell to underage buyers, and the Chief thanked Neil.
When Neil showed me the letter, I congratulated him, but he said congratulations weren't necessary. "Lakewood is my home and it's home to my business. The last thing we need is some drunk teenager wrecking a car or killing someone." He said his staff is well trained and if anyone is to get credit, it is them.
Just one more reason I go to Convenient Food Mart.
