The Greenwood Avenue road has never had "suburban nature." Something will be built there eventually, and that would bring traffic too. We need food shopping competition. Stop and Shop's scarred? Tell them to improve their prices, variety of products, customer service. They are the Queen of grocery stores; Shop Rite is the King.

I FULLY AGREE ! AND DON'T FORGET, STOP & SHOP IS FOREIGN OWNED WHEREAS "SHOPRIGHT" IS A US COMPANY. -- ALSO, THERE WON'T BE MORE TRAFFIC IN WYCKOFF AFTER SHOP RIGHT OPENS ITS DOORS, BECAUSE THERE WILL BE LESS TRAFFIC GOING TO STOP & SHOP.
