Plum Plums leaving Pound Ridge is a sad day for the town.

Like a divorce, landlord/tenant negotiations can be filled with emotion and sometimes irrational behavior. Also like a divorce, when we hear the “facts” from our friends,  their side is always right.

My guess is there is plenty of blame to go around and all sides should have made a greater effort to conclude the negotiations. It would have been nice for Plum Plums to stay in Pound Ridge, even at a different location.

The result is the tenant winds up in a different town, at a less desirable location; the landlord winds up with a vacant store, and a loss of rent; the town loses and important tenant in the heart of the business district.
