Dear Jimmy John’s,
We should have known better and bought local. Thanks for declaring downtown Rockford a “Dead Zone,” according to your employee taking orders from the Jimmy John’s store at 6112 N. Second St., Loves Park, Ill. “We don’t go past Spring Creek,” he said at approximately 6:55 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 11. “In fact, that’s Dead Zone for all the Jimmy John’s stores. We can’t deliver there.”
No five sandwiches and drinks for us, the hardworking staff here at The Rock River Times on deadline.
Thanks for the discrimination against all of downtown Rockford!
This will also go out to our 60,000-plus readers in five counties in north central Illinois.
Instead, we called our $60 order in to our regular hometown Tuesday-night deliverers, Marie’s Pizza, 1513 Charles St., Rockford, IL 61104, 815-226-1342, whom we never should have deserted for you, you “corporate cold sandwiches.”
Editor & Publisher of The Rock River Times Frank Schier and staff
P.S. Yes, we really are putting this “note” in tomorrow’s edition.
From the Sept. 12-18, 2012, issue
