Several years ago, a not so busy corner on the edge of my town had a liquor store standing on it. The property owner was renting the building to them. The property owner also had a 20 acre empty lot right next to it. As the city grew, Home Depot bought the lot next to the liquor store and attempted to buy the lot the liquor store stood on. As it happens, the liquor store had a 50-year lease on the property. Home Depot wanted the lot for more parking. The property owner and Home Depot blocked all access to the liquor store with construction cones to try to put them out of business. After a lengthy court battle, the liquor store won. Needless to say after about 12 years or so, the liquor store still thrives on that corner, The Home Depot is now defunct, a great ironic twist if you ask me.
I needed some cheering up after today's decision and your post did it.
Now it is safe for the Home Depot to return.
Irony or Justice?
