Letter: Three Rivers Market a Good Investment

Your feature on Three Rivers Market was superb. ["A Coup For Three Rivers," Citybeat by Rose Kennedy, Sept. 1, 2011] With the opening of a new location and enhanced amenities, the northside of downtown will definitely benefit from a stable consumer-driven business.

As a local business owned by its members (service is open to member and non-member alike), this expansion reflects positively on the power of cooperative business models as well as faith in downtown Knoxville growth.

This is a good investment for Knoxville and the local community.
