Timothy Hack started this petition to Dollar General

Dollar General proposes to build a location next to Sweet Things on Centerton Rd., Pittsgrove Twp.

Pittsgrove residents take great pride in its rural nature and characteristics and are strongly opposed to the Dollar General project on the following grounds:

1. Economic impact: "Mom and pop" stores such as Andersen's and Pittsgrove Deli may not survive.  

2. Maintaining Pittsgrove's Character: Dollar General is a commercial box store that does not reflect prosperity or the "rural charm" townspeople expect in their community.  Light pollution will impact the township's quality of living.  

3. Safety:  Increased traffic near the high school, with inexperienced drivers, will result in a higher potential for accidents.  Further, Heritages, a convenience store located several miles away, has been robbed countless times in the five years.  This type of business lures criminal activity, which will have an impact on the schools located next door (school lockdowns).  Finally, middle and highschool students will have immediate access to unhealthy products such as vape items and tobacco. 

To that end, if the proposed Dollar General comes to fruition, the signers of this petition agree to boycott Dollar General.
