It has understandably become a major talking point for locals, for the potholes have become enormous in the last few weeks, creating an unnecessary hazard in the process.
Not only can they cause major damage to smaller vehicles, drivers are now risking collision by swerving back and forth along the narrow access route to avoid them.
Research indicates the complex has an estimated total net income of $1,321,000 a year. Surely there’s some cash in the coffers to make some repairs for the benefit of shoppers who spend their hard-earned there.
