Which Old Melrose Business Do You Miss Most?

Let us know by posting a comment below.

With Johnnie's Foodmaster and other Melrose businesses shuttering this year, it got us thinking: Which old local business do you miss most?

Johnnie's is sorely missed by Melrose and surrounding residents. More importantly, Johnnie's provided a walkable, reasonable grocery to many of Melrose's elderly and handicapped patrons. Getting to Shaws is a challenge for these residents that are on a fixed income with limited transportation resources.

By Dollar Tree, I mean we need one..cute little affordables for low income & little kids can buy their parents little gifts there...like a five & dime..God knows we don't need a Spa, bank, pizza parlor, restuarant, nail salon, high end gift store..so why not a Dollar Tree?!!!!!

The Ravine road island is not going well. You don't have to believe what I write here - just ask the guy who hit it in the dark and blew out his tire or the people that were trying to maneuver around it and hit and knocked down the stop sign. It is worst than before.
