I read with interest "Residents Complain Supermarket Infringes Upon Quality of Life" Levittown Tribune, July 8. Having heard so many stories over the years about big box stores that couldn't care less about their neighbors, it was refreshing to see that a store that I patronize has spent more than $300,000 on items to improve the quality of life in the community. This is especially important because (according to the story) they were not required to provide these very expensive extra improvements because of government regulations. The fact that this was done to improve their relationship with the surrounding community is quite admirable. I wish that all of these big businesses would feel the same way that Pathmark of Bethpage does. It also appears in the story that there are a couple of remaining concerns that Pathmark is currently resolving by spending evern more money. I am happy to see that all of this is getting accomplished because of the help of the Town of Hempstead and Town Councilman Mr. Hudes. The old, empty Pergament building was a blight on the community for many, many years and did nothing to improve property values. Other big corporations should take a lesson from Pathmark and try everything they can to minimize the impact on those who have chosen to live adjacent to commercial property.
