Salt Springs senior asks for closer grocery options

To the Editor:

I just read a letter from Dee Torres asking about putting other stores in her neighborhood, the northwest side of Ocala. I am also a senior citizen, but I’m on the northeast side of the county in Salt Springs. The nearest big grocery store is Winn-Dixie, which is 24.7 miles away from my house. Walmart is another 30.8 miles away. I’m writing in case you have any input on getting a larger chain store closer to neighborhoods like ours, as I too am on a fixed budget and can’t afford 30-mile trips one-way for groceries, etc.

Thank you,
Jersey Lasky
