To the Editor:
Benny’s is closing its doors. Too bad, I loved Benny’s, but Warwick residents are used to losing terrific places to go, like Jenny’s ice cream parlor and Rocky Point amusement park “rides,” and Almacs and Zayre and Gordon Jewelry Store at the mall and Warwick Shopper’s World and Grossmans and Block Buster Video and the Conimicut Pharmacy and Lupino’s Pizza Parlor and Sears department store.
Who would have ever figured that we would outlive all of this, and Hooters, too. So what’s next? How much can we take?
Remember the Warwick Credit Union? And Industrial National Bank and even Old Stone Bank and Greater Providence Trust and Joe Muratore and Columbus Mortgage loan cars?
And Caldor and Jordan Marsh? And how about Shepards and the Outlet?
And Filene’s and Burger Chef on Post Road, and Valley’s Steak House, oh boy the hurt of it all, but we all survived it. And our lives go on and on.
Good luck to all of the employees of our favorite places to go. Thanks for all our terrific memories.
