Perhaps I am, but I deleted my last post for one very simple reason: I do not have first-hand knowledge regarding the real estate lease for the writer of the letter’s parents. It is not my business; however, my children grew up in Columbia and we have all visited the store in question and it would not surprise me to hear that the rents at the Columbia Mall are ridiculous. I don’t think the business failed because it was unwanted, just that it failed because it couldn’t continue to be at the location it where it has been. Bun Penny was and continues to be a popular place to go for coffee, tea,wine and other goodies. But the Mall in Columbia is growing and now caters to the very wealthy, sadly edging out the older businesses that don’t charge the arm and a leg that many in the area can – and many cannot – afford. What the letter does indicate is what can happen when there is little to no regulation of business. Sorry. I am not a rampant capitalist.
