Editor,
I would like to address all of our great customers and workers at the south
division location for the last thirty-five plus years. There's been a lot of speculation in the last two weeks about our future at this location.
I would like to thank you for all your wonderful support and service for so long. We realize that Dumsers' owes its success to you. That success, however, would not be possible without the help of the Rapoport family for many years. We feel a part of their family and they are certainly a part of ours.
A lot of hard work has been put into this small store by Mr. Nathan first and then by Dumsers'. We do very well there as you can see by the lines of customers, but it didn't happen overnight. We feel very blessed to have such a following. For the city to just step in and take over is not fair.
My family and I have decided that it would be morally wrong to turn our backs on the very family that has supported us for all these years. Having said that, I want to make it clear that there is no circumstance under which we will ever be a tenant of the city. We stand firmly with the Rapoport family.
It would be with great regret for us to give up this location, since it has become so special to us. But if the appeal is lost, we will.
Thank you,
the Timmons family
