Apple Market. Really, people? Like we need another gym. There are at least four big gyms in town.

We need a store like Apple with great customer service, a fresh meat counter and a great deli and bakery.

Let them open a gym at Salisbury's old location. We need a store in this part of town — not a gym.

    I am writing this because I live close to apple market and I spend most of my time in an electric wheelchair and Have no need for a gym.

    However I have a hard time getting around to get food anywhere that is not close by.

    I do not have anyone in town that can drive me to get food on a regular basis.

    If there is no grocery store close by I will have a very hard time buying food.

    I worked at this store when it was Sell Rite #2--- a long time ago. It was the newest--biggest--nicest grocery store in town then. Times change.
    I would love to see the store survive and prosper but having spent forty years in the food business all over the country---- I have seen this sad movie many times before.
    I shop here---mostly their fish and fresh meat department when I want something really good---I think their fresh fish and fresh meat department is the best in town.
    I am not a consultant but seems to me the property could be partitioned off to house the gym and a smaller store. They might be able to prosper with a premium fresh fish and premium meat department and a small convenience type store offering beverages and a few essentials.
    Just a thought..

    You are absolutely right, besides do we really need another gym? I moved to Lockeford St, in part so I could walk to Apple Market. I'm sorry their business plan didn't work, maybe a consultant could help. Save Apple Market!!!!!!!! Save those jobs! Occupy (kidding)
    The store on the corner is closing. They’re putting in a “health” club.

    The store on the corner is closing and I won’t be seeing you here anymore.

    The store on the corner is not some big chain and sometimes that’s a pain. But some of the chain stores have closed, too.

    The store on the corner is closing, which means my last minute dash for milk will be longer. (That was a bit of a pain, when the bosses moved closing time from nine to 8, then 7.30.)

    The store on the corner is closing; there go some of the best lunch deals with a good sandwich, soft drink and chips.

    The store on the corner is closing, it’s my store, I know where everything is.

    The store on the corner is closing and I will miss all my friends. I don’t think I know a single name, nor they mine except for what’s on the credit card.

    The store on the corner is closing; now I’ll have to pay more attention and shave, put on a clean shirt, cause you could get away with that with family.

    The store on the corner is closing; there goes the only one I could walk to (if I have to).

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
