To the editor: Thanks to community from business owner

To the editor,

I want to thank the people of Hastings who, for the past 11 years, have supported my business, Scandinavian Marketplace. I am fortunate that I live in a town where I have had many loyal customers and wonderful employees who helped to make my business a success. Even though I am still going to continue the Scandinavian Marketplace internet store and my mail-order business, I will miss the daily interaction with my customers.

I also want to thank the Hastings Star Gazette for the wonderful article they featured which informed my customers of my closing. I have always felt our local newspaper is one of the best, and I think a person would have to look far and wide to find another newspaper in the state of Minnesota that rivals the Hastings Star Gazette when it comes to reporting the local news, informing the public of community events, and treating us to insightful, informative and historical articles. Thank you.

Janet Martin
