Changes on Jekyll will mean replacing stores

I read with interest that some of Jekyll Island's businesses are for Linger Longer's plan. Don't they see that all the stores that we know and love will be replaced with more upscale, modern stores?

Say goodbye to Maxwells, IGA, Whittles and the drug store, as they will all be replaced with Walgreens, Publix and the like.

Sadly, this is happening all over. Small local businesses hold on as long as they can until their rents are increased to the point where they cannot afford to compete with the big chains.
