BRIDGEPORT -- A local store owner is suing a church-run food pantry, claiming it's hurting his business.

When Emmanuel Dieujuste opened his small store, Convenience Brand Grocery Store, at the corner of Stratford Avenue and Hewitt Street last October, he said his landlord promised he would not have any competition in the same building. But two months later, the Apostolic Ark Pentecostal Church opened its free food pantry in the storefront next door.

"Other than tobacco products, they are giving away for free everything I am selling," Dieujuste complained. "Since they opened, my business is way down."

They might only be open a few hours, but I bet they empty out a room full of food in that three hours. The pantry probably did hurt his business.


Damn... Now I am morally conflicted... gaah.gif

Sigh...

I think both the pantry and the merchant twit should sue the landlord who started the conflict.

Yeah, people often have trouble with my sense of humor. Always assume I am having fun and being friendly. I usually am. Scrappy can attest, I am a very serious person. I can go on a great rant pretty quickly. But, since all of us here pretty much always agree, I can have a little more fun with it. I also find it is easier to get a point across with humor than force. I think it goes back to that thing about me being intimidating to people.

We should approach life with a sense of humor and a touch of madness or we will all turn into asshole and lunatics. (Damn... what a great title for an album. Assholes and Lunatics.)


Saucy, JR?

Are you coming on to me, big boy?
