Proposed Consent Agreement In the Matter of Tops Markets LLC, a limited liability company, Morgan Stanley Capital Partners V U.S. Holdco LLC, a limited liability company, and The Penn Traffic Company, a corporation. FTC File No. 101 0074
I received a notice of the FTC felt that the competition of Tops in their words "Tops acquisition of Penn Traffic would be anti competitive and likely would Lead to higher price gouging." The key words I saw "likely would" as in they aren't happening now. Instead of making decisions based on speculation of what might happen, wait til you have some evidence that it is happening. Our Tops on 448 N Keystone Ave, Sayre Pa 11840, is a community based store. It was one it was P&C and before that as Acme. The location is ideal for senior citizens living in community complex close by, and good location to walk to. Do you think in this age where our economy is in such disarray that closing stores and having people lose their jobs is such a wise decision. This seems to be a slap in the face to the workers.
