Letter: Whole Foods would be a boon for Beverly


Beverly deserves to have this Whole Foods shopping option. I look forward to putting an end to my inconvenient drives to the Swampscott and Lynnfield Whole Foods stores. But I will never give up my local options. I will still buy my fish at Rowand, no one can match their halibut, and go to Vidalia’s many times a week for their delectable foods and artisan products. Their locally grown potatoes bring the county of Cork into your kitchen, harvested only miles from Beverly Farms. I will continue to bring home the fabulous Henry’s Market prepared meals. Their kitchen is superb. Just last night we savored their famous chicken pot pie and chocolate cake.

Please don’t let a vocal, misinformed minority mislead you and deprive Beverly of what it deserves. There will be development regardless of the outcome of this referendum. If the “no” vote wins, a shopping plaza will still be built, but Beverly will have lost the opportunity for road improvements to handle the future inevitable traffic, and will lose a new Whole Foods shopping option along with its much-needed support for our community.

Please do the right thing for Beverly and vote “yes.”
