New Business

Taco Villa, A reloading/Ammo store, Wish Walmart would put in a Super Store, Would really love to see a Home Depot or a Lowes. I know most of these are just pipe dreams, but it would help on money as we wouldn't have to drive to Pampa or Amarillo to shop as much as we do now. I buy as much as I can here in Borger, but some things small town store can not compete with, and this I understand....but the way money is tight if I can save enough I will drive to save....ie. my fence...save almost 850 dollars by driving to Home depot in Amarillo as the price PER Picket was 1.85 less in Amarillo.

What Borger Really Needs!!

More than anything I think Borger needs entertainment for family and friends coming in from out of town and most of all something for senior citizens like a place for coffee and games such as dominoes or card games that anyone could afford and feel comfortable in going to anytime of the afternoon and evening. The opportunity center is good for people who enjoy that enviroment, but my 85 year old mother said she was'nt going out there with all those old people ha ha. I think she was saying let's have something that's more colorful, maybe music and dancing and a smoking area..where middle age people would like and the older people would fit in and be comfortable too.Maybe a live band with old country and western music and to fund it all their could be a cover charge. With a little creative thinking I think we could make Borger a much better place to live and enjoy because everything should'nt be about more stores and eateries,but about enjoying life after all is'nt that what it's all about....Let's get back to the good ole day's.The widow's and singles are all dressed up with no place to go....How !!!

I don't disagree with you, but I'm telling you when you included smoking in that scenario, a bunch of folks are out. The last thing I want to do, is go out for a nice evening and come home smelling like cigarette smoke. YUCK!

I do agree that a place where people can listen to music & dance would be nice. But it seems most of those places bring in the wrong crowd.

If someone wants to put up the $$$ to open such a place, I'll give it a try.

A super Walmart would be nice, maybe an Ihop, also a Chick-fil-a would be wounderful. I think new busnisses is a good thing they would create lots of jobs, the Lord knows we need it.

maternity stores

BORGER NEEDS MATERNITY STORES, THERE ARE PLENTY OF PREGNANT WOMEN IN THE AREA TO AT LEAST HAVE ONE STORE..... IT GETS TOUGH TO HAVE TO DRIVE TO PAMPA OR AMARILLO FOR CLOTHES WHEN WE COULD HAVE STORES HERE....

A SUPER WALMART A CHICK-FIL-A AND WHATABURGER WOULD ALSO BE NICE....

AND ONE MORE THING

A SCRAPBOOK STORE... WALMARTS SELECTION STINKS....

JUST MY OPINION

Actually the retail and food business simply slices up the amount of money being spent in Borger. It takes away from existing customer base of a business. Borger needs some manufactoring business. Perhaps ones that could draw upon Ryton and natural gas. They need to been ones that don't demand large amounts of water. This way employment would be expanded and create larger customers base for all local business. We have several important factors business needs--FPC, rail, roads(some improvement needed) and a better than average county airport.

I AGREE
