'Look at the positives'

I was reading about a Dollar Tree opening near the Yosemite Ranch Restaurant . The restaurant owner, David Fansler, seems to have a big problem with this type of store and the type of people that will no doubt shop at this store.

He states, "I call them a flea market with a roof ... and it's just crap all over the place."

Maybe he should open his mind to the fact that traffic will increase and that, just maybe, his business will improve as well.

I certainly hope he isn't implying that Dollar Tree customers aren't good enough for his overpriced steakhouse. He should welcome other businesses and try to look at the positives. Time to grow up!
