To the editor:
Other day we had an article discussing about the closing of the Wondrous Things in Croton, that we should shop more in Croton then in other cities. Well, what I can say about shopping in Croton, is that I live here for a while and we don’t have much good places to shop around here. In my opinion, there are only a few friendly places on this town. I can name a few: Black Cow, Pircio’s Cleaners (which is very pricey), Gabe’s, and Forno II Pizza.
Regarding not-friendly places, there are a lot! In particular, the Croton Deli, which the lady is always in bad mood and the liquor store by Zetynia. This one in special, as last weekend the lady kicked me out of the store because I was trying to exchange a liquor which I had purchased a few minutes before. She said to me after we started to have an argument (in a very bad English): GO TO THE DEPARTMENT, IS MY BUSINESS I MADE THE RULES, YOU GO OUT OR YOU GO JAIL. SEE THERE (Pointing to the sign which says: NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES IN BROKEN BOTTLES). My bottle wasn’t broke, was just the wrong one. I will not put my feet on that store anymore.
Also, have you noticed that all the pizza places here, deli’s, etc,—people deal with the food and the money without washing the hands?
The Enterprise rent-a-car, at Croton Auto Park, is another place you should avoid. It is the worse Enterprise location EVER. They never have good condition cars, they take forever to answer the phone and they never hold a reservation that you make over the phone. Even if you make a reservation over the Internet and go there to pick up the car, it is never there.
