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
First of all, even considering that TOPS Market purchase the P&C Stores was absolutely ludicrious!!!! We have no competition and the prices are out of sight. We need to get sojme competition in here and you would think you would work to get Wegman's, Price Chopper of even Weis's to come in here. TOPS are forcing us to shop out of town due to the high prices and the lack of stuff on their shelves. It has been just terrible trying to buy groceries and the prices out of sight because of the lack of competition. What is the matter with you people - can't you do something for the people for a change and think what it does to each and every household member. To hold the decision for this long is also ludicriuos. Those poor people that have worked for years at P&C are just now being told that they will not have jobs. Instead of making jobs, you are doing away with them and instead of helping the consumers, you are making it worse. You all make me sick. Get some competition in here and fast. This area is bad enough and now to have one grocery store, with no competition, makes it even worse. You should all go on vacation and quit your jobs and let someone else come in and evaluation the situation.
