Piles of snow deters shoppers in Bellville

Piles of snow deters shoppers in Bellville

I want to shop locally. I want to support Bellville businesses, especially the ones on Main Street.

I am 70 years old and cannot jump snow piles that are several feet highin front of the stores.

Despite the two -foot wide path that may be shoveled by the curb, how do I get to it when cars are parked along the street?

My solution is a common sense one. I go somewhere else to shop when there’s snow on the ground and will until and unless it is safe for me to shop in Bellville.

I think the Bellville Merchants’ Association needs to address this perennial safety problem.
