The product was no up to their usual standard. Of course, I do have exceptions, such as old time businesses.


I also prefer it. It is one way that helps me save some money that I can use to pay the increase in RE taxes.

Jersey City council repeals chain store restrictions

JERSEY CITY — The City Council repealed the city’s four-year-old chain store restrictions on Wednesday after city officials told them the rules would not withstand legal scrutiny.

The council voted 7-2 in favor of repeal, with council members Rolando Lavarro and Jermaine Robinson voting against. The two men said the restrictions have helped small businesses.

This was a dumb idea from the get-go and would have been very difficult for landlords to comply. Not that I particularly sympathize for large retail landlords but I think it is up to the customers in a free market to decide what stores go in the large commercial buildings. That 30% rule that didn't make a lot of sense to begin with would have stifled competition and furthermore, while I'm not exactly a fan of big box stores either, would our city leaders rather have empty space in a lot of buildings and fewer jobs? Many people identified this proposed restriction as a "solution in search of a problem" and as it happens, they were right.


You are right. It was a dumb idea from the beginning.

It was anything but a dumb idea. It helped locally owned businesses get a foothold, especially restaurants, and helped a now-flourishing downtown create its own identity. I know people on this board hated it from the start -- and just wanted a Chipotle of their own -- but having the same fast food franchises as every other city in America is not a great thing.
