The loss of Bristol Farms

I'm sorry to hear that Bristol Farms in the Valencia Bridgeport Marketplace is closing, but my first and utmost concern is the roughly 100 employees who are going to lose their jobs.

When a business comes into an area where there are other businesses like theirs and they try to cut up the pie and take a "piece of the pie," the portions of the pie become very thin slices.

At least the residents of Santa Clarita have other markets to go to that are close by, not like in Needles, where the sole market is closing and one has to travel 27 miles to the next market in Arizona.

Most of the retires in Needles don't drive, which is going to present a hardship.

"Another crushing blow to the community will be the 53 jobs lost when the store closes," according to a Feb. 12 story in the San Bernardino Sun.
