The newly opened supermarket is a bit of a mixed blessing. While it made shopping a lot easier it also presented a problem for small shop owners. When it was first being built there were a lot of shop owners who were protesting, trying to stop the project, even turning in a petition to the Town Hall. In the end it was denied and the supermarket was built, the business for the smaller shops has dropped slightly significantly but they some still see enough business to stay open. There is still some resentment towards it, but it has mostly died down.
