, I owned a day old bread store ( Silvercup Discount Bakery) I build up a trade , advertised and after i had built it up A wonder Bread Thrift store open right across the street and took all my business way , They ( the suits from ITT Bakery spied my store for several months , rented an old Bicycle shop across the street at a cost of $3,5oo a month , I was paying $300 a month rent And renovated the place to a tune to $50.000 in today’s inflation that would be 1 $100,000 plus dollars ..
What they wanted was a ready made market with no risk , I mean this was ITT , for that kind of rent they could have opened up anywhere at any location in the major Blvd or main mall in my area . No ethics whatsoever .
As I viewed my customers shopping at the Wonder Hostess Thrift Shop owned by ITT ( the telephone company) it was like a knife being turned in my stomach. I prayed to o G-D to put them out of Business but my prayers would be answered 35 years later. better late than never, as they are going out of Business Like an end of a brutal empire coming to an end the world and me breaths a sigh of relief/
