It’s not Kremmling’s fault that convenience stores went out of business

To the Editor:In response to the letter that was submitted in last weeks paper, you should not blame the town for letting Kum and Go force you out of a job. Fifty years ago on the same land where the K&G sits now, my Uncle Bob built a gas station. It was the nicest station in town for years. He ran it with great pride.In the early 80s, the Quikstop came to town and introduced us to the convenience store. They could sell gas for less due to the fact that they could make money on the groceries in the store. Uncle Bob was more or less forced out of business.The shelves in the Quikstop have been bare for a couple of years. It was closed way before K&G came to town. And the Shop n Hop talked of building a new store for a couple of years and never did.This is not the towns fault. This is America. You must compete to get our business. You are not just entitled to it.Jason BockKremmling
