Bernie is the Town Manager of Deerfield, and I popped into his office today when I was at Town Hall to pay my tax bill. He had some blockbuster news, among the many things he told me: ATKINS is coming to South Deerfield!
This is major, major, we have always needed and wanted a grocery store here, and Atkins of South Amherst is just about the best anywhere! It has fresh produce, gourmet foods, amazing meats cut by butchers, flowers, a deli and bakery and everything anyone needs. The new store, I hear, will be even bigger than the flagship in Amherst. Right over by the railroad tracks in a new building being developed by Steve Schecterle, who owns the Spirit Shop. This is going to be one of the busiest places in town, and help all of us.
Bernie also told me we had a bike rack coming to the town common, and that he’d take a look at where we can place the placard about the new WiFi we’ve provided there. Boy, South Deerfield is coming up in a big way, by the time these new stores open we will be packin’ ’em in here at the GoNOMAD Cafe!
