Residents in Lansing's Colonial Village will meet Thursday night to discuss the closing of a nearby L&L Food Center.

It was the only grocery store in that area, and residents are now worried about what the vacancy will do to the neighborhood.

If you would like to weigh in, the meeting starts at 7 p.m. and runs until 8:30 p.m. at the South Lansing Community Development Association, which is located at 1900 Boston Blvd.

    Obviously L & L is having a problem, but closing the store on Mt. Hope was a stupid mistake! That store was busy from eary in the morning to closing. A lot of people who live on the west side shopped there during the week, and I never saw the place with no customers. Unlike the MLK store which is a ghost town.

    I don't understand why they closed this store, I know I and several of my friends and neighbors stop in there at least twice a week on the way home, the place was always busy with lots of customers. Think they closed the wrong store.

    I was born and raised in Lansing and used to work at a Shop-Rite.The thing is,is that these stores tend to be more expensive,than the bigger stores. These stores are great for picking up a few items,but as far as doing major grocery shopping,like buying alot of food for a week,or two,or for a big family,then these stores really weren't economical,People didn't do the large volume shopping here,like L&L wanted them to.

    L&L was notorious for selling expired and moldy food. They deserved to be shut down based on health violations alone. They were extremely expensive too. Good riddance.

    Okay I have heard this same story so many time is it not funny, every time a business closes the "community" whines about it, come people get real the business would still be there if your utilized their services. I am not talking about only the L&L Stores it is all business’s that can not keep the doors open for one or another. Wake up folks if you want small business in your community the make an effort to shop at them!

    We will miss the Saginaw Sreet store. However they were high priced. I hope that Gormans on Grand River Ave. will do more business than they already do. Gormans has a great meat counter and they have weekly specials. Sometimes costing less that the big guys. We try to support local business first. We have not shopped at Wal-mart in over 20 years and no plans of going anytime soon.

    I'm sure if L&L were making a good profit at this store it would of remained open. Look around Lansing and you will find many empty stores and businesses.
