Rumor is you do not have to look to far to see the soon to be new owner.

It tooks like Joe is correct. According to the Secretary of State's website, there's a newly formed (5/7/12) entity - 160 Park Street, LLC - of which one Mark G. Hall is the manager. Now I wonder what he is going to do with the property?

Rumor is parking for the store and delivery trucks.

Hey Joe, if you get a chance you might want to check out the Patch article that explains the Reading water situation. You'll find that your $3000 average water bill, that you were claiming to be fact, was close to 3x higher than the actual figure, which I had been trying to convince you of all along, but instead you chose to ridicule me, which is par for the course for you. peter (who ever I am)

Peter, When I say you are a coward for not using your full name I am not ridiculing you.
peter lucci May 31, 2012 at 02:26 PM
There you go with your selective memory again, Joe. Nice to know that you consider 90% of the Patch bloggers to be cowards. You might want to go back and read some of your other negative/nasty comments that you are well known for making. BTW, have you wiped the egg off your face yet, for your latest inaccurate claim?

Gee, those delivery trucks will make a nice addition to the lovely center vilage area, won't they? Not to mention all the fun that will ensue as customers cross Haverhill Street to reach his store. Whatever happened to his plan, so quickly and eagerly approved by the town, to cut down all of the remaining trees west of the store in order to build yet another access road? At least the Tyvek (most of it, anyway) is no longer visible on the old store.

Barry, every store has delivery trucks...even the "old" Ryer's! How else is the merchandise going to get there?? My guess is the delivery trucks will drop off their goods at Lew's, and Ryer's employees will bring it over to the store at their discretion. The employees will probably park at Lew's, too. Both these things will make parking in front of Ryer's more convenient for their customers.

Peter....just add a fictitious last name and no one will bother you. Worked for me.
Joe Veno May 31, 2012 at 10:53 PM
Dave, He has no idea what you mean
Joe Veno May 31, 2012 at 10:54 PM
Peter I do not consider all people who do not use their names cowards. Just a select few.
peter lucci June 01, 2012 at 01:42 AM
Ok, now will you answer my earlier question re: the average water bills in Reading?
Joe Veno June 01, 2012 at 01:46 AM
Dave, At least he learned something today. How to come up with a phoney name.
peter lucci June 01, 2012 at 01:50 AM
No surprise there Joe. The folks that use their full name (fictious or not), that happen to agree with you, are just fine.It's the people, that for whatever reason they choose to not use their full name (fictious or not), that happen to not always fall in line with your opinions, that get knocked by you for being cowards. Thank God that you were never promoted beyond Head Crossing Guard, who knows what havoc you might have created back in the day.

When they built the new Ryers, they lost the revenue from parking for the Post Office employees, who now park at the Trinity church. Could it be that the Post Office employees will now park at the old Lew's?
peter lucci June 01, 2012 at 12:45 PM
Make that two things, Joe...I also learned that you have no backbone / credibility. Gotta love those who won't admit when they are wrong and then resort to name calling in an attempt to avoid the subject at hand...classic fraud.
Joe Veno June 02, 2012 at 12:37 AM
Now, now, Peter with the phoney last mane. No need to get nasty. I will leave it at that.
peter lucci June 02, 2012 at 01:47 AM
Thanks Joe, I really appreciate the fact that you completely avoided answering my initial question. I will leave it at that.
