Do you see what I see?
There have been some provocative letters to the editor recently. Some folks see us as half empty. I won’t comment on the letters critical of The Daily Triplicate. Whether you love us or not, we will continue to provide newsprint and ink to letter writers on all sides of any given issue so you can share your personal insights or perceptions.
I do question, however, a couple of letters published last week criticizing local businesses. They suggest we should drive in any direction away from Crescent City to shop and dine. One letter writer said that groceries are cheaper, produce is better and we can eat at more restaurants that are open longer if we leave Del Norte County.
My experience in Del Norte County on all counts — price, quality, selection and service — doesn’t jive with these letters.
While out of town, in Cottage Grove, Ore., I bought a kitchen trash composter (one you put on your sink to put food scraps in). I had seen it in a catalog and didn’t think it would be available locally. To my surprise, I discovered the very same item at Del Norte Office Supply for $10 less. I purchased one for some friends of ours and gift wrapping was free. If you’re looking for better customer service, I challenge you to find it anywhere.
