Don’t patronize centre

 

Re the March 2 article, UM, county clash with mall owner over pedestrian bridge above U.S. 1: It seems the owner of the University Centre strip mall isn’t amenable to providing five parking spaces for the miserly price of $1.85 million that the county has offered them to be able to anchor the bridge.

They don’t seem to appreciate their clientele, a large number of whom are UM students and a few like me who dine and shop there.

The county should retract its offer to pay even $1 to the owner and UM students and others should simply boycott the businesses until a bridge is built.

Perhaps the tenants could convince the owners of the error of their ways where everyone else has failed.
