OK finally reading all the comments, I am not the only one who thinks that an abandoned building in the dark is more likely to have kids hanging out causing problems then a business open with people around. I actually live down the street from the Union 7-11 and actually feel safer knowing it is always open and there are people around. And by the way both 7-11's are near, delis, pizza places, chinese places, and bagel places and they seem to be doing fine. And the point of having 3 7-11's in town, really? Do we need so many pizza places, bagel places, hair salons, NAIL SALONS, chinese food, drug stores, cell phones places, supermarkets, should I go on. If they are staying in business then there is not a problem. How about worrying about all the empty storefronts that look horrible around town because no one can afford the rent on them and many businesses are moving out of town because of it! (but don't get me started on that!) or maybe you can ;)

Amazing how the people who are in favor of 711 do not care about the deli and bagel shop.it is not the same as the traffic on union blvd. this will really hurt business and the idiots that do not obey no turn on red will kill someone. But with the crooks in govt I'm sure it will go thru, especially when no one has common sense anymore.

ummm...wouldn't it be "big government" if they didn't let it go through? If the traffic will kill business it will also kill the 7-11...if its good for business it will help the entire area.

true...and for any parents who are completely out of touch, the kids do the serious drinking and drugs in the woods behind Ace hardware...you know, the "V spot"...the train tressle also a favorite.
