Historic Downtown Bedford Preservation
The business owners and residents of Bedford and Bedford's Historic Downtown District strongly object to a Dollar General being developed at the building located at 647 Broadway Ave (former Medic Building). We do not object to Dollar General on principle, we only urge them to find a location that is not in the Historic District of Bedford.
We the residents and business owners in Bedford's Historic District are enthusiastic about filling empty storefronts, however, not at the cost of diminishing the charm and viability of the Historic Distric. Our downtown is what distinguishes Bedford from other towns and we are proud to have our businesses here. Adding a bargain discounter will not bring customers in from other communities to shop and patronize local businesses. Rather it will detract from the charm and aesthetic of the city in general.
We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge our leaders to act now to do anything in your power to stop Dollar General from opening a location in Bedford’s Historic District.
